Mission Statement

To conserve Maryland's diverse native wildlife, plants, and the natural communities that support them, using scientific expertise and informed public input.

Description

The MD Natural Heritage Program, as part of the MD Wildlife and Heritage Service, is the lead state agency for protection and conservation of non-game wildlife and rare plants and animal species, and natural communities. We develop the list of rare, threatened and endangerd plant and animal species for Maryland. Our staff inventory and monitor rare species and natural community populations, providing information for our statewide database of rare, threatened and endangered elements. This database is one tool we use to develop management plans, guidelines for living with rare species. We work with private landowners, other research scientists, NGO's and other state agencies to provide opportunities for biodiversity conservation, and to promote public appreciation and support of the full complement of Maryland's natural treasures.
