I have worked with NatureServe, and its network of natural heritage experts in positions I have held in three separate states, in university research, private sector and state government roles. In all cases, I turned to NS to get the highest quality, most current, data and information on whatever species or natural community I was working to protect. They always had it, in one place, available via smart on-line map- and database-driven tools. NatureServe will undoubtedly continue to gain recognition as the most comprehensive source for the highest quality data on all rare species and habitats in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
-threatened and endangered species-related field research
-drafting various NEPA documents
-conducting GIS-based research to conserve rare species/habitats
-various needs for general data and information sharing via direct communication or the web
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
