About Us

The Nevada Division of Natural Heritage (NDNH) is a division within the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Our mission is to maintain biodiversity data for Nevada's at-risk plants, animals, and ecological communities to support informed land use planning and conservation planning decisions and to help prevent species from becoming threatened or endangered. 
As a non-regulatory, independent resource for scientifically objective data, environmental review, and technical assistance and expertise, we support the needs of diverse planning, conservation management, research, education, and economic development activities in Nevada.
NDNH is a member of the NatureServe Network, an international network of similar programs throughout the western hemisphere that provide the scientific basis for effective biodiversity conservation.
