I haven’t written a paper where maps and soil surveys need to be included. Can someone help me out with this by giving me a good outline or resources to help me with my research on the Ground Pangolin?
For the plan, include the following main sections (subcategories are not required, but should be considered). This should be a complete proposal, not an outline.
Background on Target Species (e.g., common name, scientific name, state and federal listing status (e.g, endangered, threatened) and year of listing, historic range, current range.
Habitat and food sources used throughout all life phases.
Threats the selected species faces, now and in the future.
Goals & Objectives of the Management Plan
Goals: long term desires
Objectives: short term actions to meet goals
NWI map – if water features exist on the property
Local or regional field guides available
Review of earlier management plans
How will you divide the territory into management units
Include an annotated aerial image or map (e.g., Google Earth)
Evaluate habitat quality for target species in each compartment
Management Practices (i.e., what actions are you proposing?)
Time frame/timing concerns
Alternatives – consider alternatives and construct a table to evaluate important and practical options
