Natural Heritage New Mexico (NHNM) does research on the conservation and sustainable management of New Mexico’s biodiversity. We have New Mexico’s only state-wide rare species and ecosystems database (NM Biotics) which helps shape conservation efforts. We do biology research and education in the context of conservation and climate change.
The dramatic landscapes of New Mexico harbor uniquely diverse plants and wildlife that are part of a natural heritage cherished by the people of our state. Natural Heritage New Mexico serves the people of New Mexico in their efforts to effectively manage and conserve these valuable biological resources. We support high quality natural resource policy and decisions by providing knowledge, information, and education to government and business leaders, policy makers, natural resource managers, scientists, and private citizens in New Mexico.Mission
We integrate these three activites in our work to sustain the natural biological heritage of New Mexico for present and future generations.
