Wildlife Management

Scientists inventory and monitor animals in the park to understand what lives in the park and how things change over time. This research helps park managers decide how best to take care of the park environment. For example, Rock Creek Park manages the white-tailed deer population to maintain a healthy forest and diverse wildlife populations.
