Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge
create a PowerPoint presentation (other formats by Instructor permission only) of approximately 25-35 slides with the primary goals of:
Describing the plan using the grading criteria at the bottom of this page
Organizing your presentation using the grading criteria
Critiquing and analyzing the plan using information gathered from peer-reviewed primary scientific literature and course materials
Critique and analysis means that you look at each type of management being done at your site and using peer-reviewed primary scientific research and course materials to evaluate the management strategies being used for specific species, habitats, and other issues at your site. For example, if your site has active management for an endangered bird, then you’d find the recovery plan for that bird and the most recent scientific work on that bird (or similar species) to supplement the recovery plan and use those sources as evidence to evaluate the effectiveness and appropriateness of the management. Or if your site uses a particular management strategy such as prescribed fire, then you’d find the peer-reviewed primary scientific research that speaks to that strategy at your site or sites that are similar. Those are just 2 examples of the sorts of things you might encounter and how you would handle them.
You should have 5-10+ sources and you must also cite them on each slide (APA style) and on one of your final slides, which should be a References slide. Your references should include our textbook and your management plan as well appropriate peer-reviewed primary scientific literature, government and NGO reports, and other appropriately scholarly material. Don’t forget that you must cite the sources of your images as well as your data/information. Images can be cited in the same way as text using standard APA citation style. Use appropriate citations throughout the presentation for each fact or figure shown. Information sources should be cited on each slide next to the information, just like you’d do in a paper. Then have a “References” slide at the end using the full APA style reference for each, these should be alphabetized. Image sources can be cited on the slide itself or at the end on a separate “Image Sources” slide – where they would be organized by slide number. Follow APA format for the reference citations both within your writing and in your references section at the end of your presentation.
