Incorporating Human Dimension Objectives into Habitat Planning and Delivery
The incorporation of human dimension objectives within the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) has compelled waterfowl and wetland managers to consider whether and to what extent landscape characteristics such as public land access, the type, amount and location of wetlands, and site infrastructure will increase support for wetland conservation among user groups. We demonstrate how model outputs can be used as an objective metric to evaluate the benefits of alternative habitat acquisition and restoration projects. These data and methods show promise for incorporating human dimension objectives into habitat delivery and understanding potential tradeoffs relative to biological objectives.
