Study Process

The SW Florida Conservation Scenarios project has been organized into a series of milestones:

1) Determine indicator species of interest

2) Obtain best available spatial habitat data for indicator species

3) Refine statewide planning scenarios to reflect local conditions & plans

4) Use spatial modeling to project impacts of scenarios on species habitats

5) Propose guidelines for Landscape Conservation Designs which mitigate or avoid adverse impacts

6) Handoff to local and state conservation planners developing & implementing LCDs for this area
