This document consolidates this collective guidance to serve as a focused reference for NPS staff as they evaluate the myriad issues and decisions facing the agency and the wildlife held in its trust. Further, this document will inform members of the public, fellow agencies, and partners about the considerations and constraints used by NPS when implementing mandates relative to wildlife.
