A researcher receives a grant to study urban populations of guinea fowl. As part of the protocol, the investigator will release purchased birds and then recapture them at designated intervals for tracking and data collection. The protocol is approved and the research begins, but the investigator is unable to recapture all the birds and complete the study. What factors should the IACUC consider when the investigator requests more animals to repeat the experiment?
