Welcome to the Mississippi–Alabama Habitats Tool!  This site provides resources to aid conservation and restoration activities in Mississippi and Alabama, including a Projects Database and a Priority Habitat Mapper.  The Projects Database includes information on conservation and restoration projects occurring in the two states.  These projects can be visually viewed in the Habitat Mapper, which provides additional conservation planning data for Alabama's Mobile and Baldwin Counties.  Included in these data are the priority habitats identified for conservation and restoration that were identified in 2008-2009 by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program’s Coastal Habitats Coordinating Team.     Other data sets for further planning purposes include but are not limited to land cover, political boundaries, human uses, and ecological attributes for the two-county area.  For more information about the process used to identify priority habitats, a Prioritization Guide for Coastal Habitat Protection has been prepared that provides an overview of the process used to develop consensus around priority habitat areas.  For more information or to comment on this tool, please contact Mobile Bay National Estuary Program at 251-431-6409.
