My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Natureserve, Arlington, VA, USA
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.
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.
