February 16th, 2017: “Establishing explicit biological objectives to guide Strategic Habitat Conservation for the Gulf Coast” with John Tirpak (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), James Cronin (U.S. Geological Survey), and Blair Tirpak (U.S. Geological Survey)

If you are a Gulf Coast researcher, conservation planner, or wildlife biologist you will be interested in the results of this collaborative project among the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and four Gulf Coast Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (including the South Atlantic). Why? Because biological objectives shared among Gulf partners is foundational to achieving a common vision for a healthy Gulf of Mexico watershed! The goal of this project is to develop explicit biological objectives for each of 13 Gulf focal areas, along with associated conservation targets linked to specific habitat characteristics, all contained within a geospatial database. John, James, and Blair will report out on the project results, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
