Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 39
Develop monitoring programs by federal biological research and management agencies necessary and sufficient for incorporating climate change effects on at risk game species, populations, and habitat. Programs should use existing inventories and create new ones as necessary to improve systematic observation and recording of data on species, population levels, and habitat.
The National Park Service and the US Fish and Wildlife Service currently conduct species, populations and habitat at national parks and in coordination with Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. However, the management of game species most often is under state authority. A good example of a partnership between state and federal agencies is the Western Governors' Association's Initiative on Weather and Climate Risk.
