Description/Abstract: Public agencies sometimes seek outside guidance when capacity to achieve their mission is limited. In 2008, the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) sought help from outside researchers while developing an action plan to conserve aerial, marine, and terrestrial populations of migrating wildlife. Although migration is an ecological process central to maintaining biological diversity, addressing NPS’s request required these individuals to consider attitudes and behaviors of individuals, society, and agencies. The questions, challenges, and potential solutions they present are relevant to many agencies other than NPS in which natural resource managers must grapple with extensive movements and migration of wild animals.
