Meeting the Emerging Environmental and Biodiversity Conservation Science Needs for New Mexico
We provide current scientific information, research, and education on the conservation of New Mexico biota and natural resources to government, business, land managers, scientists, and the public.
New Mexico Riparian Habitat Map
The New Mexico Riparian Habitat Map provides a comprehensive, fine-scale spatial view of the composition, cover, and structure of riparian and wetland vegetation along New Mexico’s perennial streams and rivers. Northern, middle, and northeast New Mexico are available.
New Mexico Environmental Review Tool (ERT)
The New Mexico Environmental Review Tool (ERT) is an interactive tool for conservation planning and New Mexico Department of Game and Fish review. The ERT provides information on wildlife and habitat diversity, protected lands, and other natural resources, and allows users to submit proposed projects for review of potential impacts to species and their habitats in New Mexico.
New Mexico Biodiversity
New Mexico harbors an exceptional diversity of plants and animals, ranking fourth among states in number of species. New Mexico's economy is intimately intertwined with its biota, and in these times of rapid change, the need for relevant conservation science only continues to expand as we try to meet the growing challenge of sustaining both our economy and this rich biodiversity. To this end, NHNM strives to provide the best conservation science to conservation practitioners, scientists, students, government and business leaders, and the public.
