Tools for Conservation Planning
Tool for Conservation Planning
Wild Planner is a collection of GIS-based tools designed to support land use decision making for wildlife conservation. The toolbox includes tools to assist conservationists, land use planners, developers, and other interested parties with designing landscapes that provide secure living habitat and/or allow movement habitat connectivity for wildlife.
Wild Planner is based on the precautionary principle. It identifies and eliminates areas suspected of compromising wildlife and their habitats and evaluates remaining areas for their potential to support desirable wildlife.
Wild Planner is not intended to replace consultation with wildlife professionals or on-site evaluations. Any conservation or development plans based on results from Wild Planner should be followed up with consultation with local wildlife professionals and on-site verification before implementing plans.
