SCDNR's Natural Heritage Program staff regularly work with experts to monitor known populations of rare species and find new populations using the best available data and technology. The program also works with NatureServe, other state natural heritage programs and federal partners to analyze rare species data across boundary lines to inform decisions on how best to protect species of concern across their ranges. This information, gathered from researchers, biologists, and citizen scientists, is used to better understand where rare, threatened or endangered species exist in South Carolina and how best to protect their populations.South Carolina Natural Heritage Program (SCNHP) Portal
