GIS Position for range-wide lesser prairie chicken spatial targeting tool for conservation delivery


August 2012 - March 2014


This project will expand upon the first version of the SGP-CHAT and create a more robust spatial planning tool (SPT) for directing conservation of the lesser prairie chicken (LPC). This tool is a critical component for agency conservation planning, and it is a necessity that agencies delivering conservation for LPC work from the same source data for maximum benefit of the species and its surrounding ecosystem.
