A major objective of the Migratory Connectivity Project is to integrate full-life cycle biology into the conservation management planning process. Because research has historically focused on animals while they are in temperate regions, management plans often ignore environmental problems from other periods of a migratory animal’s life.

But as our knowledge of migratory connectivity grows, scientists and managers begin to have a more complete vision of needs and threats across seasons and political boundaries.

Many resources are available for wildlife professionals and policy makers to learn the current state of full-life cycle knowledge as well as techniques to investigate questions of migratory connectivity.
