Welcome to LandScope Georgia

The LandScope America website is a work in progress. In addition to comprehensive nationwide information, like much of what you can already find via the map viewer, we will include extensive state-by-state information, found on state home pages like this one. Because Georgia is one of many states where we are still working to develop all of the needed maps, stories and other content, currently you’ll find only summary information here. For an example of completed state content, visit the home pages of our five pilot states: Colorado, Florida, Maine, Virginia and Washington

Conservation Priorities in Georgia

  • Georgia Wildlife Action Plan

    The goal of Georgia's Wildlife Action Plan is to conserve the state's animals, plants and natural habitats through proactive measures emphasizing voluntary and incentive-based conservation programs, management, research and education. The plan identifies high-priority animals, plants, habitats and landscape features in the state's five ecological regions. It also identifies and ranks specific programs to address conservation needs for these species and habitats, as well as resources, partnerships, performance indicators and monitoring needs for each of these high-priority conservation actions.
