Welcome to the Blueprint 2.1 Simple Viewer!
The Simple Viewer summarizes the South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint at a subwatershed and marine lease block scale. You’ll also find information about ecosystem indicators, land cover, and protection status.
The Conservation Blueprint is a living spatial plan to conserve natural and cultural resources for future generations. Blueprint 2.1 identifies priority areas for shared conservation action based on ecosystem indicator condition and connectivity. More than 400 people from over 100 different organizations have actively participated in its development so far.

Blueprint 2.1 is completely data-driven, based on ecosystem indicator models and a connectivity analysis. It prioritizes the lands and waters of the South Atlantic according to the current condition of the indicators. Better indicator condition suggests higher ecosystem integrity and higher importance for natural and cultural resources across all ecosystems collectively.
