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.
EnviroData-NM is ready for you to use!
In 2021, the New Mexico State Legislature passed HB 51, requiring UNM to create an interactive environmental database. We are proud to introduce EnviroData-NM, a centralized, searchable portal housing New Mexico’s environmental data, including information about sensitive species, public health, natural resources, and energy development activity. Agencies and the public will now be able to view these resources on a single map, and run reports about which resources are in an area of interest.
Please join us to learn about what EnviroData-NM provides and how to use it! We are offering two webinars at different times to accommodate attendee schedules: Tuesday October 11 at 10:00 am and Thursday October 13 at 6:00 pm
Please contact Natural Heritage New Mexico at email@example.com for any questions.
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.
