THE LEOPOLD REPORT

The Leopold Report (officially Wildlife Management in the National Parks) was published in 1963. Its influence upon the philosophy, policies, and persons of the National Park Service has far exceeded most studies, commission reports, advisory documents, and other attempts to guide and direct the National Park Service.

The National Park System Advisory Board and a committee of preeminent scientists, with support from the National Park Foundation, have recently taken up the challenge of revisiting The Leopold Report with the goal of answering three fundamental questions: What should be the goals of resource management in the National Park System? What policies for resource management are necessary to achieve these goals? What actions are required to implement these policies?
