With nearly 1 million species at risk of extinction across the globe and the extinction rate accelerating, the need for rapid assessment of the pulse of our planet's biodiversity is apparent. NatureServe provides the foundational building blocks for conservation – objectively-derived species status ranks and distribution information – to support government, nonprofit, and private actions to preserve North American biodiversity. Working with over 60 organizations and 1,000+ conservation scientists we manage the most comprehensive standardized dataset available for over 90,000 species and 10,000 ecosystems.
