Conservation Framework

Planning For Conservation

This mapping tool is designed to provide depictions of various attributes such that they can be viewed spatially within a region, including the physical elements (climate, ecoregion, water), the human impacts (population, land use, development threats), and the existing protected areas (state, federal, and other protected lands) within a region of interest.  Additionally, the tool provides natural resource managers with layers pertinent to the current status of the black-capped vireo, including the Recovery Regions and their rankings (status, threats, and opportunities) and a depiction of potential habitat across the vireo’s breeding range.
