Strategies for Threat Abatement

Planners at a 2005 conservation meeting identified strategies that could be implemented to reduce conservation threats. These strategies were translated into goals with supporting objectives and associated projects which will work toward achieving objectives over the lifetime of the INRMP (

Such knowledge will be essential for adapting management strategies in the future and ensuring that monitoring programs track relevant indicators and changes in key ecosystem patterns and processes.
