ASE STUDY of the ESA Habitat Conservation Planning (HCP) process.
This is for a conservation biology class.
The assignment is a CASE STUDY of the ESA Habitat Conservation Planning (HCP) process.
I will attach some readings associated with this assignment.
You are expected to find an HCP that is of interest to you and prepare a 4-5 page analysis of the plan.
Be sure to answer the following questions:
1) What is the species and why is it endangered?
2) Is its preservation controversial? If so, why?
3) What actions should be taken to preserve it and why?
4) Are the actions described in the plan feasible and reasonable?
Remember to cite your work properly and to use scientific facts and data to support your work. In other words, I expect at least 5 cited sources to be used, including, at a minimum, three published journal articles as references.
