Scientists aim to identify key biodiversity areas

269799326_248e9466f2_zThe Science for Nature and People (SNAP) working group on Ecosystem Services and Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) aims to identify sites that significantly contribute to global biodiversity. In April 2016, the group met to develop recommendations and guidelines for documenting ecosystem services in KBAs, and how these areas influence human well-being. This group is a collaboration of scientists from The Center for Biodiversity Outcomes (CBO), the Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
