Natural Heritage New Mexico provided technical support and consultation to assist the Forestry Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD) in creating The New Mexico Rare Plant Conservation Strategy. The Strategy includes the best available science to identify 235 rare and endangered plant species in New Mexico, including 109 species that only occur in New Mexico and nowhere else in the world.

•Thanks to 25 years of staff and UNM student effort, the contributions of many dedicated biologists, and collaborations with our agency and university partners, Natural Heritage New Mexico’s Conservation Information System (NM CIS) has reached a milestone of 100,000 sensitive species observations.

•This rich data set includes federal and state listed species, Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN), rare plant, and species of conservation concern observations.
