Join us to learn about the Map of Biodiversity Importance, a collaborative effort to identify the places most important for conserving at-risk species.

Through the analysis of habitat for 2,216 of the nation’s most imperiled plant and animal species, NatureServe and its strategic collaborators have created maps of areas of high biodiversity importance for the contiguous United States that serve as an invaluable input to guide effective conservation decision-making for the future. Regan Smyth of NatureServe will share some intriguing outcomes of the project related to plant conservation and valuable lessons about how including plants in the priority analysis changes the final conservation picture
