The purpose of this manual is to provide wildlife management information to all Corps personnel involved in wildlife resource activities. The major emphasis is to provide guidance on biologically sound, technically reliable, and cost-effective wildlife management practices tailored to Civil Works project settings. Primary users should include District and Division biologists and resource managers responsible for the administration, planning, implementation, and operation of wildlife management activities. The information provided should be of value for various Corps functions, including preparation of Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements, development of mitigation plans, preparation of General Design Memoranda and Master Plans, development of contract specifications, and the design and operation of wildlife management programs. Contents of the manual are also expected to be useful to military installations and many other agencies, organizations, and individuals outside the Corps of Engineers.
