An environmental consulting from is hired by a natural gas utility to produce a map of a proposed pipeline through a portion of northeast Alaska in preparation for a public hearing attended by potential funders of the project. Along with considering issues such as the terrain and existing laws and regulations, the analyst designing the map decides she must also consider caribou migration routes that may cross the proposed route of the pipeline. Prior to the public hearing, her supervisor asks her to remove the migration routes from the maps prior to the hearing. What should she do?
