As a staff member of a state natural areas agency, I have worked with NatureServe since it was created. NatureServe gives our state agency National/International priorities on the species and natural communities we protect, keeps us in communication with other similar programs around the nation and the world, allows us to add our data to analyses of larger areas, provides us with common classifications and nomenclature, and provides many other services. Simply, NatureServe makes us more important that we would be otherwise. We depend on them!

NatureServe provides a framework for managing and sharing conservation information that is not available from any other source. It also plays a critical role in coordinating the efforts of the 85 US and international natural heritage programs and conservation data centers. NatureServe and the partner programs play a significant role supporting the protection of rare species and the establishment of conservation lands across North American and Central America. These conservation lands, whether state or national parks, wildlife refuges, or watershed protection initiatives are critically important to the ecological health of our planet and the well-being of its citizens.

I have worked with NatureServe and some of their scientific and technical staff, administration, and leadership since 1997. NatureServe has incredible staff who always do a great job providing technical expertise and assistance; providing high quality and useful training, tools, and information; facilitating communication and collaboration among the natural heritage network and its many partners; providing leadership and support for the natural heritage network and biodiversity conservation internationally. NatureServe has facilitated and contributed to biodiversity conservation in so many ways. NatureServe is a fantastic and invaluable organization and resource.

As a former research associate and an ecologist currently working in Ontario, Canada, I use NatureServe's Biodiversity Explorer tool routinely to obtain information on conservation priority species. I have personally benefited from the many insightful articles and papers written by NatureServe's network of conservation experts.

I've contracted with NatureServe on a couple of occasions for vegetation mapping. They have always done a great job--produced usable, accurate maps. I use the NatureServe website almost daily in my work in natural resource management.

Naturserve provides an invaluable clearing-house for biodiversity information. Their committment to networking state agencies is commendable and necesssary. Many other efforts have been made to create biodiversity hubs and they have failed or been only variably used.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my primary job of regulating biodiversity, I've been able to look at other state's information to better understand the status of a species. This allowed me to make better decisions regarding impacts to the species.

I was preparing for a local radio interview on the impacts of the gulf oil spill on migratory birds (piping plover and American white pelican) and only had 10 minutes to prepare. While I had the basic general facts I needed more precise information on the extent of these species' wintering range in relation to the gulf oil spill. NatureServe's website delivered current and up-to-date information and images that I used and provided the links to for the interview. This is only one recent example demonstrating the power of sharing such credible and transparent information with a broader audience for conservation purposes.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have both contributed toward, and benefitted from this organization for research, communication and conservation purposes. The staff are professional and curteous. The service provided is essential for my job as a provincial biologist and manager.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase awareness of their existance through enhanced social marketing. Expansion of the geographic range of the network of heritage programs and conservation data centres to other continents.

Ways to make it better...

No suggestions come to mind!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

General lack of public knowledge of conservation and biodiversity issues.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My work managing information on plant and animal species and natural plant communities in need of conservation depends on a database developed and supported by NatureServe. The information in this database informs decisions every day. Their incredibly helpful and thoughtful staff have never failed to help me improve the quality of the data we maintain. The technical and biological knowledge of their staff represent a powerful combination. Their support of natural heritage programs around the country and world has had innumerable impacts on conservation efforts.

NatureServe is the authority on the status and location of rare species and plant communities. This information is critical to the long term conservation planning that I do with a land conservation organization. Good, defensible data results in effective, efficient biodiversity conservation. The staff at the Manitoba NatureServe node (Conservation Data Centre) are constantly striving to improve data quality and usability, are easily accessible, and are willing to assist in providing practical advice on conserving and managing lands that support rare species and plant communities.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My nearly daily use of its data.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Well informed, helpful, eager to assist, aware of real-world on-the-ground conservation challenges pertaining to rare species management.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Systematically survey the rare plant communities and rare species in Manitoba, municipality by municipality. This multi-year project would result in much more certainty re: the status and extent of species and communities in Manitoba.
