Diverse wildlife populations are valuable from many standpoints, as indicators of a healthy ecosystem, for recreation, and for aesthetics. Understanding a species’ requirements and habits is the first step in ensuring the continued existence of that particular animal. Proper protection and management of an animal’s habitat will encourage optimum populations.
