Presentation:Managing and Conserving Habitats Throughout the Year
for Southeastern Birds
Speaker: Chuck Hunter Chief, Division of Strategic Resource Management,
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Our speaker Chuck Hunter (Chief, Division of Strategic Resource Management for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) oversees biological and other resource planning, management, and survey support for National Wildlife Refuges in the Southeast Region. Specifically, with respect to migratory bird management, Chuck has been instrumental in developing conservation planning efforts for land birds, shorebirds, and water birds. His presentation will focus on active habitat management for birds and will include a discussion on migration as well.

A Clumper's View of Strategic Habitat Conservation.

"I started realizing you really need to focus on species that showed stress and strain when you work toward restoration," Hunter said. "That challenged the notion that if you benefit habitats for some species, you harm others. One way you deal with that is to work in a larger area, across a landscape."
Hunter's love of long lists and Excel spreadsheets to organize broadly defined habitats and their associated species began when he was a field biologist in Arizona.
