An ecoregional framework was adopted based on Griffith et al. (2006) to support collaborative, multi-jurisdictional conservation planning and implementation of conservation actions for SGCN and their habitats. These ecoregions are areas of general similarity in ecosystems and in the type, quality, and quantity of environmental resources.
- Contain a focused set SGCN and the terrestrial habitats they occupy
- Provide a tailored analysis of Threats and Conservation Actions for those species and habitats
- Region-specific Conservation Opportunity Areas (COAs) to help operationalize conservations actions at local scales
