Conservation Case Studies: Natural Heritage Information in Action

The map below illustrates ways in which PNHP information—particularly Natural Heritage Inventory data—has been used to support a variety of conservation projects in Pennsylvania. Click on individual case studies to learn more. These case studies are not meant to be prescriptive or exhaustive; rather, they are meant to serve as an inspiration and example of potential uses of the information which PNHP provides to the public. They highlight how PNHP data can be combined with other sources of information and expertise in real-world situations to reach decisions about environmental matters that balance conservation with diverse stakeholder needs. Check back regularly, as we continue to add new examples of how PNHP supports conservation decision-making in Pennsylvania.

PNHP is a partnership between The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources,
the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission,
and the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
