Project Description

CalPIF has created a series of interactive, web-based focal species maps to compliment its bird conservation plans. These maps contain contemporary, by-species breeding status information for 83 focal species, enabling the viewer to zoom in on site, select sites to obtain current breeding information, view current and historic range maps, and obtain additional site information and principal investigator contact information. The popular CalPIF focal species maps have proven to be an effective conservation tool to spur research interest in map "gaps", to expose local extirpations in areas assumed to host declining species, and to standardize California's approach to avian monitoring. This project will create similar interactive, regional maps for fifteen focal species from the Desert Bird Conservation Plan that occur in the Mojave and Colorado deserts outside of California, in the SJV region.
