Service Provider Description
NatureServe is a non-profit conservation organization that provides
the scientific information and tools needed to help guide effective
conservation action. NatureServe and its network of natural heritage
programs are the leading source for information about rare and
endangered species and threatened ecosystems.

NatureServe represents an international network of biological
inventories-known as natural heritage programs or conservation data
centers-operating in all 50 U.S. states, Canada, Latin America and the
Caribbean. Together they not only collect and manage detailed local
information on plants, animals, and ecosystems, but also develop
information products, data management tools, and conservation services
to help meet local, national, and global conservation needs. The
objective scientific information about species and ecosystems
developed by NatureServe is used by all sectors of
society-conservation groups; government agencies, corporations,
academia, and the public-to make informed decisions about managing our
natural resources.
