ABOUT THE CONSERVATION ACTION TRACKER
Maine is a diverse and special place, from our rugged rocky coastline to the peak of Mount Katahdin. We have intact forests and cool clean waters that support 34,000 fish and wildlife species, including 378 at-risk species. Maine’s 2015-2025 Wildlife Action Plan is our state’s vision for safeguarding these vulnerable species and their habitats through voluntary conservation actions. There are over 600 ongoing and new conservation actions in the Wildlife Action Plan being undertaken by landowners, companies, non-governmental organizations, tribes, government agencies, and individuals. Actions range from planting backyard pollinator gardens to conducting field surveys of rare snakes and turtles.
With your help, we can keep Maine’s fish and wildlife thriving for generations to come. Every conservation action we take to benefit a species or habitat makes a difference. Maine’s Conservation Action Tracker (CAT) allows users to:
- Document and showcase efforts to conserve Maine’s most vulnerable species and habitats
- Learn about Wildlife Action Plan conservation projects across Maine
- Search projects by the species or habitats they benefit
- Make connections with other partners throughout the state
Anyone can explore conservation projects with the CAT. Create an account to contribute or edit project information. For bulk uploads (>10 conservation projects) to the CAT, please contact us for assistance.
