Abstract

In 2017 I completed a recreation ecology literature review that included information on various wildlife species' Flight Initiation Distance (FID), or the distance between a person and an animal at which point the animal flees. The review covered many topics at a higher level. To inform trail planning and publish a peer-reviewed journal article, I took a closer look at the FID literature and located numerous additional references. I will briefly summarize the updated findings and present several hypothetical scenarios in which we applied FID information to reduce recreational effects on wildlife while still providing quality visitor experiences in nature.
