We’re turning decades of data and knowledge into game-changing conservation actions.

We are entrusted by our partners–from government agencies to private landowners–to curate and share over one billion ecological observations from science professionals and citizen scientists. We’re building collaborative communities while ensuring the security and integrity of all data we steward.

Real Time Data

We’re developing tools that help industry, agency, and private sector partners make smart decisions from the California Central Valley to the California Current.

Water Tracker

In a warming climate, extreme drought is forecast to become more of the norm for California. Getting current and accurate science into state and regional decision making is critical for sustaining healthy ecosystems. This tool paints a picture of water needs across California’s Central Valley.

Models for the Future

We’re applying our data analysis and tool-building expertise to create ways to see the big picture of climate change. We’re partnering with key stakeholders to elevate big data sets to inform future planning.

Our Coast Our Future

We've collaborated with agency and community partners to provide California coastal managers and planners with online mapping tools that help them understand, visualize, and anticipate vulnerabilities to sea level rise and storms in their area.

Future Marshes

View and query maps to understand how sea level rise may change the extent of tidal marsh habitat and bird species distribution over the next 100 years. Make informed decisions about adaptation planning, restoration potential, and land acquisition given various sea-level rise and sedimentation scenarios. Identify areas both vulnerable and resilient to future sea-level rise.

Big Picture Questions

We’re bringing communities and data together to ask large scale questions about the future.

A Web of Wetlands

Through the Pacific Flyway Shorebird Survey and the Migratory Shorebird Project, we're bring people and data together across 12 countries up and down the Pacific Flyway to ask big questions about wetland habitat vulnerability and prioritization.

The Future of Forests

From one small swath of forest to the entire bioregion, we've amassed data that is helping partners like the Forest Service figure out how ot manage fire in a climate-changed future.

Setting the Standard

You can’t ask big questions or plan for the future if you’re comparing apples to oranges. We’ve led the way in data standardization, which has unleashed the power of large-scale data collection and facilitated stronger, more effective conservation partnerships across the country and the world. There’s still more work to be done though. We’re continuing to facilitate data standardization in areas that will have a huge impact for conservation.

Nodes of Knowledge

From the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast, we're helping partners come together, share data, and manage it better. Ultimately, this is helping set and accomplish clearer more impactful conservation goals.

Supporting Refuges

With our data management expertise we're helping to increase the value and benefits of our US National Fish and Wildlife Service Refuges by supporting their adaptive management goals.

A Rich Legacy

The way in which we've successfully standardized and stewarded our 50+year-long datasets out of our Palomarin and Farallon Island field sites has set the stage for strong data partnerships across the country and the globe.
