Marine Species of Common Conservation Concern

Map type: Marine Ecosystems

This map layer provides range maps for the North American Species of Common Conservation Concern, a group of important migratory, transboundary and endemic species selected from among the continent’s great wealth of wild flora and fauna.

These terrestrial and marine species require regional cooperation for their effective conservation.

Based on maps provided by NatureServe, the ranges of two of these species are shown above: the Ferruginous hawk (Buteo regalis) and the Pink-footed shearwater (Puffinus creatopus).

Range maps for 33 other species are also available in this map layer. Each range map contains background information with links to North American Conservation Action Plans and other resources, as available.
