NatureServe is an international non-profit organization dedicated to conserving biodiversity through the use of science, technology, and collaboration. For nearly 50 years, NatureServe has been the authoritative source for biodiversity data throughout North America. We work with 60+ network organizations and 1,000+ conservation scientists to collect, analyze, and deliver biodiversity knowledge that informs conservation action. Through our development of a shared spatial database, NatureServe provides analysis and visualization on at-risk species, habitats, and ecosystems. NatureServe has used GIS to support a variety of conservation initiatives, from identifying critical habitats for endangered species to analyzing the impacts of climate change on biodiversity. GIS has also been instrumental in developing tools and resources to aid conservation practitioners, such as the NatureServe Explorer database and the Map of Biodiversity Importance.
