Explore N.C. wildlife online

A revamped website is allowing people to discover North Carolina’s natural heritage in new ways through the N.C. Natural Heritage Program.

The site boasts several popular data tools, including the Data Explorer map that shows the locations of nature preserves, conservation areas, waterways and more throughout the state. 

A database of which rare species are found in each county — with multiple search parameters available — makes it easier to appreciate which unique species call an area home, and environmental professionals can subscribe to the environmental review tool to generate reports about natural features in specific project areas.
