Addressing endangered species problems successfully is a complex task that involves knowledge of the problem itself and its context. This paper is the fifth in an ongoing series in the Endangered Species UPDATE aimed at improving knowledge adn analytical skills in endangered species conservation (Clark et al. 1992; Clark and Brunner 1996; Clark and Wallace 1998;1999). In endangered species programs, problem-solving decisions and on-the-ground management are complicated and affected by numerous considerations. We illustrate complexities of problem solving in endangered species programs, using the Florida manatee recorvery program as an example, and describe a practical approach for analyzing problems in endangered species as an example, and describe a practical approach for analyzing problems in endangered species conservation. This problem oriented approach to decision making can help researchers, managers, analysts, other professional, and interested people to better understand and develop recovery alternative that are in the best interests of endangered species conservation.
