The Leopold Report October 26, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — kushy11 @ 1:20 pm

The Leopold Report conducted in 1963 was produced on behalf of the Department of Interior by a Special Advisory Board on Wildlife Management. The report hasn’t been properly updated for over 50 years and many are now asking for the report to be updated and revamped. The initial authors of the Leopold Report, A.S. Leopold, S.A. Cain, C.M. Cottam, I.N. Gabrielson, T.L. Kimball, addressed three main questions in the report:

1) What should be the goals of wildlife management in the national parks?

2) What general policies of management are best adapted to achieve the pre-determined goals?

3) What are some of the methods suitable for on-the-ground implementation of policies?

At the time many people found the report to be idyllic, but Director Jon Jarvis has now put together an advisory panel made up of scholars and scientists to author revisions and update the report for the 21st Century.
