Advocacy, Ethics, Client Needs, and the Resources. Maintaining Your Ethics While Supporting Responsible Growth Wildlife biologists play a key role in the preservation and management of wildlife. We study the behavior, physiology, and ecology of wildlife and how humans alter or modify the distribution and behavior of species. Wildlife biologists also conduct surveys to determine the potential for sensitive species to occur in an area proposed for development. These studies are used by land managers, resource agencies, and consultants in the evaluation of impacts associated with the development of infrastructure. But how do we balance advocacy for the species, the client, and compliance with State and federal regulations. How do we maintain our ethics while ensuring projects that benefit society are completed with the best possible mitigation to off-set impacts to sensitive wildlife. Join us for an app based interactive discussion with the audience and panel to discuss how advocacy and ethics relate to our roles as wildlife biologists.
