Select a scenario from the list below:

  1. There is a species of fish (with low numbers) that is having     trouble traveling up and down the river because of a dam.
  2. Choose an area that is economically depressed but has a lot of     species diversity, you need to protect the species while providing     jobs for locals.
  3. An animal is being poached for its horn     which is believed in some cultures to cure many diseases, it is not     critically endangered. 
  4. The demand for farming is     increasing, which is destroying native forests and affecting their   biodiversity.
  5. An animal is starting to become isolated     because it is afraid to cross roads created by deforestation.
  6. Local birds typically migrate over the winter, but people are     feeding them and thermal pollution at a local stream is keeping the     water warmer, so the birds are not migrating, resulting in water   pollution.
  7. A drought has been going on for a period of time;     the water needed for homes, businesses, and farms has decreased lake     and river levels impacting the amount available for local flora and   fauna.
  8. Species are being found dead on local beaches due to   plastic.

Use the textbook and info-graphic under course materials to find the   best resource management practice to implement.

Create a pamphlet addressing the following:

  1. What is the issue and why it would work
  2. Describe the     restoration method you selected and why it would be best (with at     least two examples of how it has worked in similar situations     from peer reviewed sources)
  3. Time frame to complete the plan     (include short and long term objectives)
  4. What is the end     goal of the restoration project
