FWS Human Dimensions Resource Portal Launched
The Human Dimensions Branch of the National Wildlife Refuge System recently launched a website for wildlife management professionals to provide access to tools and resources that assist in understanding the "human dimensions" of resource management decisions. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Resource Portal is part of the Human Dimensions website known as HDgov. This multi-agency project provides interactive information for resource management professionals and social scientists to support their conservation efforts. The FWS Resource Portal provides an interactive search tool to help guide the user to resources of interest. Additionally, the site offers a one-stop-shop for agency-specific trainings, podcasts, webinars and broadcasts, a directory of internal human dimensions experts within the FWS, a blog and conversation forum and news and event items of interest to natural resource professionals.
