An interesting effort by BlueRaster via their RedList mapper, mapping Red listed endangered species!
From the BlueRaster blog…
To inform the world about the important connections between threatened species and protected areas, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) partnered with Blue Raster to create the IUCN Red List Mapper. This interactive mapping application combines two significant global biodiversity datasets—IUCN’s Red List of Threatened Species and the World Database on Protected Areas. Now conservationists, scientists, policy makers and concerned citizens can instantly see the geographic range of a threatened species overlayed with protected areas.
The application was launched at the IUCN SSC Chairs’ Meeting 2012 in Abu Dhabi.
