This EBC webinar will discuss and introduce BioMap, a powerful tool that identifies critical land and water conservation priorities across Massachusetts, developed by the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). BioMap is an online resource that delivers the latest scientific data and resources to help people better understand and appreciate the natural resources in their communities and provides information on where to strategically and proactively deploy limited resources to make real and lasting conservation impacts in Massachusetts. BioMap allows users to work at multiple scales, identify win-win solutions, and support community values. BioMap is more than a map, it is a critical tool that offers a vision for the people of the Commonwealth to come together to strategically protect, manage, and restore lands and waters that are most important for conserving biological diversity in Massachusetts now and into the future.
