A unified conservation agenda is emerging in the United States to conserve 30 percent of land and waters by the year 2030 to halt the horrific loss of natural areas and millions of species. Geography is essential to this effort. Geographic information system (GIS) software is an integrated technology that gives spatial reference for holistic conservation planning, incorporating community feedback, and evaluating scenarios for sustained landscape conservation.
