At-risk species monitoring
June 2023 - December 2023
- Nebraska Game and Parks Commission
Conservation decision-makers need the best and most current scientific data and information available. The Nebraska Natural Heritage Program, within the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, maintains the most comprehensive database in the state for at-risk species, natural communities, and Biologically Unique Landscapes, identified in the Nebraska Natural Legacy Project State Wildlife Action Plan. Organizations and agencies use this information to inform conservation planning and implementation and to facilitate the environmental review of projects to reduce the potential for negative impacts to Nebraska’s at-risk species and natural communities. This project provides personal assistance to the Nebraska Natural Heritage Program Zoologist on at-risk species field investigations and data compilations, ultimately helping to inform and advance conservation of at-risk species in Nebraska.
