Nature's Network Prioritization Tool

This web-based interactive mapping tool helps identify conservation priorities, including areas of degraded habitat that, if restored, would contribute to a network of connected, intact, and resilient sites as part of the Nature’s Network conservation design. As part of an interconnected network, these sites can help sustain people and wildlife across the Northeastern United States. The tool supplements local-level planning tools by offering a broader, regional context.
