These data identify, in general, the areas where final critical habitat exist for species listed as endangered or threatened.

These GIS data contain stream reaches that were designated as "critical habitat" for the Oregon Coast coho salmon Evolutionarily Significant Unit (ESU) for the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The critical habitat is defined in the National Marine Fisheries Service's (NOAA Fisheries) final rule to designate critical habitat for this ESU on February 11, 2008 (73 FR 7816). The fish distribution in this data set was compiled from data gathered from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). Additionally, we received comments from the public, federal agencies, and state and tribal salmon co-managers during the rule making process. Additional information regarding the process for designating critical habitat for...
Erigeron kachinensis is a rare endemic of the Colorado Plateau in southeastern Utah. This perennial composite grows in small, isolated populations at seeps and alcoves arising along canyon walls in Cedar Mesa Sandstone substrates. Characteristics of six Erigeron kachinensis sites in Natural Bridges National Monument, San Juan County, Utah, were studied to determine habitat requirements for this species. Sites were analyzed with respect to geology, soil chemistry, physical properties, and vegetational characteristics. The alcoves studied were very saline, often with soil surfaces covered with a white crust of salt. Living cover was enhanced by perennially moist soils, diminished amounts of solar radiation, soil salinity,...

These data identify the areas (in general) of critical habitat proposed for the tidewater goby (76FR64996). These data reflect revisions to the final rule published in the Federal Register on January 31, 2008 (73FR5920). Critical habitat for the species consists of approximately 12,1570 acres from San Diego County northward to Del Norte County, California.

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...

Polygon shapefile depicting the critical habitat for the southwestern willow flycatcher. The geographic extent includes counties in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.
The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC, http://www.greatplainslcc.org/) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers conserve plants, fish and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships — known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs, http://www.fws.gov/science/shc/lcc.html) — that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity. The Great Plains LCC identifies science priorities for the region and helps foster science that addresses these priorities to support wildlife...
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 this species. Special protections and/or restrictions are possible in areas where federal funding, permits, licenses, authorizations, or actions occur or are required

These data identify, in general, the areas where final critical habitat exist for species listed as endangered or threatened. This dataset was updated with new data from the USFWS Critical Habitat Portal on 9/8/2011. This includes fixes to incorrect attribution of species names to polygons evident in previous versions of this dataset.

These data identify the areas where final critical habitat has been mapped by the USFWS for fish species. These data were compiled by the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) from a series of individual shapefiles published by the USFWS (http://criticalhabitat.fws.gov/). For more information on the process for mapping the critical habitat for each species, please see the metadata for each species listed on the USFWS web site. This particular dataset contains the fish species critical habitat areas that are represented by lines. Critical habitat represented by polygons are contained in a separate dataset. Critical habitat designations have not been made for all listed endangered species. Where critical habitat...

This USFWS data set has been clipped by NatureServe to include critical habitat only within the Central Basin and Range, and Mojave Basin and Range ecoregions, and extracted to include only the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) critical habitat areas. These data identify, in general, the areas where final critical habitat exist for species listed as endangered or threatened.
