When a species is proposed for listing as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service must consider whether there are areas of habitat believed to be essential the species’ conservation. Those areas may be proposed for designation as “critical habitat.” Critical habitat is a term defined and used in the Act. It is a specific geographic area(s) that contains features essential for the conservation of a threatened or endangered species and that may require special management and protection. Critical habitat may include an area that is not currently occupied by the species but that will be needed for its recovery. An area is designated as “critical habitat” after the...
From USFWS service description: "This data service identifies, in general, the areas where final critical habitat exist for species that are endangered or threatened. Special protections and/or restrictions are possible in areas where federal funding, permits, licenses, authorizations or actions occur or are required. Critical habitat are areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These areas provide notice to the public and land managers the importance of these areas to the conservation of the species." The data can be downloaded in a shapefile, viewed on the Fish and Wildlife Service's map viewer, or accessed through a web service. It's also possible to view the data through the ScienceBase...

This map shows areas designated (or proposed) as critical habitat for one or more listed (or proposed for listing) populations of aquatic species in Washington. Note that in this map each Evolutionarily Significant Unit and each Distinct Population Segment is considered as one population. Critical habitat constitutes areas considered essential for the conservation of a listed species. These areas provide notice to the public and land managers of the importance of the areas to the conservation of this species. Special protections and/or restrictions are possible in areas where Federal funding, permits, licenses, authorizations, or actions occur or are required. Freshwater/riparian-related species or populations...

This dataset was created to serves as one sub-layer of the Florida Marine Blueprint. The Florida Marine Blueprint was created to aid in prioritizing ecosystems and habitats derived from species biodiversity, highly valued habitat and potential marine migratory corridors. Highest priority areas are those where there is high species biodiversity/richness and overlaps in valued habitats. The Blueprint will then be used to inform where potential management and conservation practices should be focused and potentially carried out.

Critical habitats are areas considered critical to the survival of a particular species, as determined by USFWS. Ecoregions are areas of similar biota and climate, as determined by the EPA. This map was created by calculating the percent of each ecoregion that is considered critical habitat, regardless of species. The Critical Habitat by Ecoregion map was derived by calculating the percentage of each Ecoregion that is occupied by pixels representing Critical Habitat (of any species). The Critical habitats are areas considered critical to the survival of a particular species, as determined by USFWS. Ecoregions are areas of similar biota and climate, as determined by the EPA. This map was created by calculating...
