Wildlife / Habitat Specialists
The Wildlife Diversity program works to conserve this fabric for the benefit of current and future generations. Our team includes experts in botany, ornithology, herpetology and invertebrate biology that provide leadership on the conservation of rare species and areas with high conservation value across the state. Regional diversity biologists provide a local resource for landowners as well as leadership within local research, planning and outreach initiatives. Urban Biologists do the same for urban communities, which are our fastest growing habitat and involve many unique challenges and opportunities.
Under the guidance of our biologists, we maintain a clearinghouse of information on our rarest species. The Texas Natural Diversity Database (TXNDD) is a repository of data collected by our biologists and by our collaborators from across the state. This database is a valuable source of data for current and future researchers and conservationists working in Texas and is used extensively by private industry when they are evaluating potential impacts. Our Wildlife Habitat Assessment Program uses the TXNDD and many other resources to assist project developers in identifying, evaluating, and addressing potential impacts to natural resources of conservation concern in Texas.
