Implement Monitoring Plan

4.1 During and after construction of the project's wildlife crossing structures, the monitoring plan is a key tool to determine the effectiveness of the mitigation. Performance measures identified in Step 1.3 will assist the implementation liaison in determining if project objectives are being met.

Regular monitoring and reporting of results to stakeholders can raise awareness and promote continue support for the project as well as alert decision makers to potential outcomes that may call for adaptive management actions to be taken. Regular reports help establish and maintain mutual respect and trust.

The monitoring plan is likely to extend longer than the construction phase. Ensure that this possibility is considered during the planning phase.
