To effectively and efficiently manage natural resources, it's vitally important that we know as much as possible about the species and ecosystems that are present on our lands, where those species and ecosystems are located on the landscape, their conservation status, and the threats to their survival. NatureServe provides the services, data, and tools that form the foundation to smart natural resource management. After all, if you don't know what you have, and how it's doing, how can you manage it?
