The New Mexico Rare Plant Conservation Strategy
The New Mexico Rare Plant Conservation Strategy was developed by the Forestry Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD) in coordination with the Rare Plant Conservation Partnership (NMRPCP), which includes state, federal, and tribal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and interested citizens. The Strategy aims to achieve results through a collaborative approach that is based on the best available science, close coordination, data sharing, and taking strategic action.
Specific goals include:
The Strategy is a call to action, highlighting conservation steps that federal, state, and local agencies, private groups, academic institutions, and others can take to assist with meeting the seven goals.
