The article provides information on monitoring of the Wildlife Action Plan by Minnesota. The main challenge facing the implementation of State Wildlife Action Plans is how to monitor the effectiveness of the plans over time. The three main components in monitoring the plan include collecting of information, analyzing the information, and drawing conclusions to act on the information. The key habit-level monitoring includes tracking the amount, status, and condition of the habitats. The monitoring varies depending on the habitat in question.
