Layer: Coastal Critical Habitat Designations (ID: 10)

Name: Coastal Critical Habitat Designations

Display Field: commonName

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: The Endangered Species Act (ESA) requires the Federal government to designate critical habitat, areas of habitat essential to the species’ conservation, for ESA listed species. This dataset is a compilation of the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service designated critical habitat in coastal areas. Critical habitat is defined as: Specific areas within the geographical area occupied by the species at the time of listing that contain physical or biological features essential to conservation, which may require special management considerations or protection; and specific areas outside the geographical area occupied by the species if the agency determines that the area itself is essential for conservation. It is important to keep in mind that maps published before May 31, 2012 were only for illustrative purposes and the Federal Register text descriptions should be used for authoritative purposes. For designations published after May 31, 2012, the maps (and any clarifying textual descriptions) are the definitive source for critical habitat boundaries. See metadata for online linkages to reference full listings of proposed and final critical habitat areas.
