The South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint is a living spatial plan to conserve natural and cultural resources for future generations. It identifies shared conservation priorities across the South Atlantic region.Blueprint 2021, released in August 2021, is a totally data-driven plan based on terrestrial, freshwater, marine, and cross-ecosystem indicators. It uses the current condition of those indicators to prioritize the most important areas for natural and cultural resources across the South Atlantic geography. Through a connectivity analysis, the Blueprint also identifies corridors that link coastal and inland areas and span climate gradients. The Blueprint reflects extensive feedback from the broader cooperative...

These data represent multispecies core areas for breeding habitats of greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus), Brewer’s sparrow (Spizella breweri), sagebrush sparrow (Artemisiospiza nevadensis), and sage thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus). Core areas represent the smallest land base necessary to contain the resulting distributions across all species; for example, a 25% core area represents the minimum area containing at least 25% of the distributions for each of the four species. These models were developed using prioritzR (https://prioritizr.net/index.html) using minimum set algorithms and relative targets set equally across each of the four bird layers.

»Download the Blueprint 2021 development process to read the full documentation as a pdf«The Blueprint is a living spatial plan for sustaining natural and cultural resources in the face of future change. It identifies opportunities for shared conservation action, prioritizing the lands and waters of the South Atlantic based on the current condition of natural and cultural resource indicators, and a connectivity analysis. So far, more than 700 people from over 200 organizations have actively participated in developing the Blueprint. To learn more about the Blueprint, visit the Blueprint page.

These data represent core areas for breeding habitats of pinyon jay (Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus). Core areas represent the smallest land base necessary to contain the resulting distributions across all species; for example, a 25% core area represents the minimum area containing at least 25% of the distributions for the species. These models were developed using prioritzR (https://prioritizr.net/index.html) using minimum set algorithms and relative targets set equally across each of the four bird layers.
The USFWS Southeast Region’s joint Science Applications and Migratory bird program (SAMB) recently launched an effort to optimize operations to best achieve the objectives of the program. This effort developed a decision statement, established an objectives hierarchy, and identify possible measurable attributes to assess progress. The effort has been quite successful and well received, however there remain several task and analyses that will help solidify and complete the decision analysis effort. Here we will test the operability, (i.e., the practical capacity to collect these metrics on a regular basis to assess the state of the program and check progress towards goals). Additionally, SAMB needs the ability to...

These data represent core areas for breeding habitats of pinyon jay (Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus). Core areas represent the smallest land base necessary to contain the resulting distributions across all species; for example, a 70% core area represents the minimum area containing at least 70% of the distributions for the species. These models were developed using prioritzR (https://prioritizr.net/index.html) using minimum set algorithms and relative targets.

These data represent core areas developed from models predictive of relative abundance for sagebrush obligate species. Cores represent the minimum area necessary to encompass the concomitant proportion of the species total abundance; for example, a 25% core represents minimum area necessary to encompass 25% of the total predicted relative abundance for a species. Spatial models were developed using stop-level Breeding Bird Survey count data (BBS) and spatially-referenced covariates including landcover, climate, topographic, and fire variables measured at scales from 120m to 6.4km. All models were fit using random forests.
