Region 8 Habitat Conservation Plans - Data Current as of November 30, 2015.

Summary

Habitat Conservation Plans (HCP) are planning documents required as part of an application for an incidental take permit under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973. They describe the anticipated effects of the proposed taking, how those impacts will be minimized, or mitigated; and how the HCP is to be funded. HCPs can apply to both federally listed and non-listed species, including those that are candidates or have been proposed for listing. Conserving species before they are in danger of extinction or are likely to become so can also provide early benefits and prevent the need for listing.

Purpose

The HCP spatial data specifications standards content was developed to provide standardized methods for creation, management and dissemination of HCP data. It is intended to achieve the following objectives: • Confidence: It is crucial that those who evaluate and use HCP data have confidence in its quality and accuracy. One way of fostering this confidence is by implementing standards by which quality and accuracy can be measured. • Efficiency: Standards make it possible to create tools to automate the uploading, maintenance, and display processes. • Consistency: Standards make it possible for us to commonly share HCP data within the Service and to integrate it in other products. • Improve Landscape Level Species Assessments: Understanding the locational information associated with HCPs, helps the Service evaluate at both a landscape and individual species level where and how to improve species conservation. • Evaluate and monitor HCP success: Standards help both the Service and cooperators monitor conservation activities progress and make adjustments as needed.
