Wildlife and the NJ Landscape - Patrick Woerner, Melissa Craddock

"As the most densely populated state in the nation, New Jersey faces extreme pressure on its natural resources. As more and more habitat is lost, people are beginning to appreciate the benefits of maintaining land in its natural state. In order to identify important wildlife areas, the Endangered and Nongame Species Program (NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife) has developed the Landscape Project to map critical habitat for New Jersey's endangered and threatened wildlife. This presentation will focus on how ENSP biologists collect endangered and threatened species data to populate the Landscape Project map. A handful of endangered and/or threatened wildlife species will be highlighted to explain threats, conservation needs, research efforts, and volunteer contributions to each project.
