BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Wildlife and habitat management is best carried out on a scale that exceeds park boundaries.
The Recipient is the entity responsible for the stateâ¿¿s management of wildlife and natural resources.
Units of the National Park Service in Utah provide key habitat
for many species, and with millions of visitors a year, also provides abundant opportunities for public outreach and education.
Recipient, Zion National Park, and other Utah park units will continue to cooperate on the management of California Condors, Bighorn sheep, and other species and habitat of interest which cross our boundaries.
Both parties shall work together to provide consistent outreach messaging, and to support projects of mutual and public benefit.
STATEMENT OF WORK The project and other activities pursuant to this Agreement will be individually authorized by separate NPS task agreements, with each project or activity having a separate statement of work and budget developed cooperatively between the NPS and Recipient.
Utah NPS Units and Recipient may work collaboratively on projects managing wildlife, (including bighorn sheep, California Condors, and other species).
Recipient and NPS many also collaborate on invasive species management, water quality and fish monitoring and management, wildlife disease (especially white nose syndrome in bats) monitoring and prevention, and other issues which cross park boundaries and can best be managed in a larger context.
NPS and Recipient may also collaborate on projects involving public education and outreach designed to protect natural resources and provide public information.
