These free media can be reproduced in blogs, news stories, school projects and more just remember to give proper credit to the USGS, please!

Understanding the Level of Protection for Alaskan Species
Scientists are studying species range and distribution in Alaska to help identify those that have a significant portion of their habitat outside the formal network of protection, such as National Parks or National Wildlife Refuges. The project will develop a comprehensive statewide species occurrence database of more than 400 species. By identifying their habitats, land managers and policy makers are better informed to make decisions when identifying priority areas for conservation. This project is a collaborative effort between the USGS, the University of Alaska and the Alaska Natural Heritage Program. You can learn more about this effort and the USGS GAP Analysis Program by visiting http://gapanalysis.nbii.gov/portal/server.pt.
