By expanding on our core strengths and complementing the work of others, NatureServe provides the information, methods, and tools needed to reduce threats to and ultimately improve conservation of coastal and marine biodiversity.

Our work supports coastal and marine resource managers, conservation practitioners, emergency responders and business communities dependent on coastal ecosytems.  Our methods include developing coastal and marine ecological classifications; coordinating observation data standard; mapping; assessing conservation status and threats, and establishing metrics for assessing and monitoring ecosystem condition to support restoration efforts.  We work with partners to develop tools, share expertise, and publish data to support ecosystem based management and coastal and marine spatial planning.
