Presentation: Active Habitat Management for Birds Speaker: Chuck Hunter Chief, Division of Strategic Resource Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
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. .
