Wildlife Monitoring Plan: "For Project PODs, a Wildlife Monitoring Plan (WMP) will be provided to BLM to acquire existing wildlife information, monitor populations and assess specific mitigation measures for effectiveness. The WMP will help BLM operators and cooperators identify problems, design project plans, monitor decisions and make recommendations to adjust management actions. The application must include a description incorporating application of programmatic measures from the WMP to protect wildlife in the project area. A copy of the WMP can be found in Appendix F."
