Conservation Planning Portfolio
Project: Conservation Infrastructure Analysis
Client: Indian River Land Trust
Summary: CivaTerra and the Indian River Land Trust preformed an ecological assessment of Indian River County, Florida to prioritize the Land Trust's conservation efforts. Data detailing wildlife habitat, surficial water resources, vegetation, and ecological connectivity were analyzed and overlayed using GIS. This data-driven process resulted in a Conservation Infrastructure Map that identifies areas with high conservation values and allows the Land Trust to generate support for their mission and preserve the natural heritage of the County.
