After a bunch of indicator improvements and lots of data crunching on high powered computers, the draft of Blueprint 2.1 is now available for review. The improvements were a little bigger than originally planned. As you will see, this is a little more than a “small update”. Many of the no-brainer places still come out as important, but there are big improvements in freshwater, marine, and urban ecosystems.
Go to the Draft Blueprint 2.1 Review page to learn more and access the data layers on the Conservation Planning Atlas! Comments are most helpful before June 1st.
