How Natural Heritage Programs Helps to Conserve Endangered Species?
TNC and its partners neither do not use ranking system alone to set priorities. With each species or element record, recommendations are made for protection, inventory, research, and management.
These recommendations are frequently based on a number of site-specific facts and qualitative assessments of species’ conservation needs. Ranking system has limitations for some conservation objectives.
This system does not distinguish between species on basis of economic, ecological, or taxonomic value. Another limitation is that system has been used primarily to identify and purchase or otherwise conserve small “ecologically unique” habitats rather than conserve large diverse landscapes.
