Ecoregions are large units of land and water that: contain a geographically distinct assemblage of natural communities and species; share a similar environmental factors including climate, physiography and soils; and interact ecologically in ways that are critical for their long-term persistence.
The map below highlights the ecoregions for which NCC has completed Conservation Blueprints. These are documents that map out our broad mission at the ecoregional scale in clear targets and defined geographies.
Conservation Blueprints answer the questions: What does conservation success look like on the landscape? What do we need to do to realize that vision? To answer these questions, we must engage the best available science and community consensus, and take action in an informed, deliberate and efficient manner.
