UncertaintyHow can the impacts of restoration activities on wildlife populations (other than fish) be effectively monitored?
ThemeMonitoring and evaluation methods
Criticality Level Priority
Rationale Wildlife monitoring is a critical component in the landscape-scale approach to assessing ecosystem health. Monitoring of impacts on wildlife populations provide a critical and more enhanced view of the overall effects of restoration actions. Interactions between species (e.g., bears transporting nutrients to forests via salmon) need to be understood to evaluate impacts of management actions. Currently, there is often little systematic monitoring of non-fish species.
