Abstract or Description

This map shows the critical habitat and nesting sites of important bird species in Maine. Although Acadia National Park is a protected zone, many of the key locations are not located within the park itself. Even for the few areas within the park, these sites see human traffic via hiking trails. The Human Development Intensity is based on a Maine Office of GIS dataset that indexes these values. The map is projected using the NAD83, Universal Transverse Mercator Zone 19N coordinate system.
