The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) is a collaboration between The Nature Conservancy, the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) to address scalable solutions to global challenges at the intersection of nature conservation, sustainable development and human well-being. The Ecosystem Services and Key Biodiversity Areas Work Group principle investigators, Dr. Leah Gerber and Dr. Penny Langhammer, et al. are working to incorporate ecosystem services and human well-being benefits into Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) developed by The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
