Abstract or Description

This map shows the distribution of critical habitat for inland wading birds and water fowl, and for the endangered roseate tern. It also highlights islands around Acadia which sea birds rely on for nesting habitat. Mapping these sites is critical to creating conservation plans for bird species in the Acadia region.

This map was projected using the NAD 1983 datum and the UTM zone 19 N coordinate system. Data was sourced from the Maine Office of GIS (www.maine.gov/megis).
