White-tailed Deer Management Plan (Deer Plan/EIS)
The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing a White-tailed Deer Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Deer Plan/EIS) for Fire Island National Seashore. The purpose of the Deer Plan/EIS is to address issues associated with the abundance, distribution, and behavior of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) within park boundaries. The issues include impacts from deer on the natural and cultural resources of the Seashore, as well as impacts resulting from deer-human interactions.
