The poster should present the species background, management strategies, and scientific basis. The poster should be visually appealing and clearly convey your ideas. A good rule of thumb for how much information needs to be included is that it should take you approximately 5 minutes to read the information on the poster. Do not simply paste in sections of the plan or whole paragraphs of text, but create a tool to deliver your ideas to the audience (hint–bullet points work well). Do not forget to include a reference section and in-text citations. The reference sections must be on your actual poster, but you can use small text and place it in the corner. Remember that your target audience is the professional scientific community, and they want to know the science behind your work!

1A poster is a single page generally 5 feet wide by 4 feet tall. To change the slide size in PowerPoint, follow these instructions. Assignments that contain 2 or more pages/slides will not be accepted.
