Idaho Wildlife Management Areas Interactive Maps

Thirty-two Wildlife Management Areas located in six Fish and Game regions have been established to protect wildlife habitat and are available for hunting, fishing and other public enjoyment of wildlife. Varying from 275 to 85,000 acres, each area is dedicated to primary purposes such as big game, waterfowl and upland game.

The lands encompassed by the WMAs vary from backcountry forested habitats for big game animals to agricultural areas with important pheasant and waterfowl habitat. Thousands of big game animals winter on some WMAs and tens of thousands of waterfowl winter on others. Nongame wildlife use all the WMAs. These lands are diverse and critical habitats that provide great opportunities to enjoy both game and nongame wildlife.

 

iMapInvasives

iMapInvasives provides an on-line, GIS-based data management system to assist citizen scientists and natural resource managers working to protect natural resources from the threat of invasive species. Visit the iMapinvasives website 

 

Invaders of Texas

Invaders of Texas Program is an innovative campaign whereby volunteer "citizen scientists" are trained to detect the arrival and dispersal of invasive species in their own local areas. That information is delivered into a statewide mapping database and to those who can do something about it. The premise is simple. The more trained eyes watching for invasive species, the better our chances of lessening or avoiding damage to our native landscape. This website also contains information on local workshops, toolkits, and online seminars. Click here to become a citizen scientist.

 

Invasive Plant Atlas of New England (IPANE)

The Invasive Plant Atlas of New England's (IPANE) mission is to create a comprehensive web-accessible database of invasive and potentially invasive plants in New England that will be continually updated by a network of professionals and trained volunteers. The database will facilitate education and research that will lead to a greater understanding of invasive plant ecology and support informed conservation management. An important focus of the project is the early detection of, and rapid response to, new invasions.

 

Invasive Plant Atlas of the Mid-South (IPAMS)

http://www.gri.msstate.edu/ipams/images1/maplogo.pngThe Invasive Plant Atlas of the Mid-South (IPAMS) is an integrated research and extension project to develop an invasive plant program for the Mid-South states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Research activities include conducting systematic regional vegetation surveys to assess the distribution of key invasive plants, developing models for predicting the occurrence of target species based on land use and cover, and evaluating the relative effectiveness of professional versus volunteer surveys.

Invasive Species Interactive Maps for Louisiana

Invasive Species Interactive Maps for Louisiana show how invasive species have entered ("portals") and moved ("pathways") through Louisiana, and why the Bayou State is especially vulnerable to species invasions.  Created by the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research through a generous grant from The Coypu Foundation of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2001.

IPaC - Information for Planning and Consultation

IPaC is a project planning tool which streamlines the USFWS environmental review process. Integrate the environmental review process into your project design. Quickly and easily identify USFWS managed resources and suggested conservation measures for your project.

Explore species and habitat
See if any listed species, critical habitat, migratory birds or other natural resources may be impacted by your project. Using the map tool, explore other resources in your location, such as wetlands, wildlife refuges, GAP land cover, and other important biological resources.

Conduct a regulatory review
Log in and define a project to get an official species list and evaluate potential impacts on resources managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Follow IPaC's Endangered Species Review process—a streamlined, step-by-step consultation process available in select areas for certain project types, agencies, and species.

Perform an impact analysis
For projects or species not covered by the step-by-step consultation process, get a list of potential impacts from your specified project activities to use when making effect determinations.Receive conservation measures recommended by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists to avoid, minimize, or mitigate effects to listed species.
