TNC Ecoregional Priorities in Washington

The Nature Conservancy, in cooperation with partner organizations, has developed a suite of Ecoregional Assessments for all the ecoregions of the United States, including the nine that cover Washington State. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Washington Department of Natural Resources were major partners in developing these nine assessments.

Ecoregional assessments provide a regional scale, biodiversity-based context for conservation efforts. They identify ecologically significant areas for conservation action with a goal of protecting the biodiversity of the ecoregion. The conservation actions can include a range of strategies: incentives for private landowners, acknowledging and encouraging best management practices on working landscapes, restoring degraded ecosystems, putting land in conservation easements, and acquisition of key parcels.
