Conservation Planning

Conservation planning is a process of land-use planning that incorporates the conservation of biodiversity. Conservation planning has several stages, including measuring and mapping biodiversity, identifying conservation goals for the planning region, implementing conservation actions on the ground, and managing and monitoring the conservation actions. Nature Chelsea is in the first stage of conservation planning; gathering data on species occurrence and quality and quantity of habitat. Over the next two years we will work in collaboration with the Municipality of Chelsea and landowners to identify opportunities for conserving biodiversity in Chelsea.
