How is monitoring conducted after projects are completed?

Monitoring needs and methods are identified for projects as part of the project planning and development process. Implementation monitoring is conducted by the group that is primarily responsible for a project. The USGS conducts effectiveness monitoring on past and current projects and looks at the performance of the WLCI at the landscape scale. The WLCI Monitoring Team, USGS and WLCI partners identify monitoring needs and develop objectives and standardized protocols to evaluate whether conservation projects are achieving their intended objectives.
