A Critique of Wildlife Radio-tracking
and its Use in National Parks

Conclusion


The constant need by NPS administrators for up-to-date information about park resources will usually conflict with the desire to keep the parks as pristine as possible. Because wildlife radio-tracking is so valuable for providing information and no substitute is in sight, the NPS can best deal with the dilemma by informing itself about the magnitude of the problem, proactively dealing with it through educating park personnel and visitors, and by minimizing the extent of intrusiveness through use of the best technology to do so.
