Attention all BiodiverCities and local government biodiversity practitioners,
In collaboration with the Nature Conservancy, California office, San Francisco Department of Environment has developed and is disseminating a Municipal Biodiversity Survey in order to gather data on the extent to which municipalities are actually managing their own indigenous nature and biodiversity. We want to “lift all boats” so that we can all learn and improve our own best practices based on what everyone is doing on urban biodiversity and natural lands management in the world’s cities.
The back end of the survey is sophisticated enough that we will be able to develop a robust report on the state of the world’s cities’ management of their own biodiversity. We are excited about this as both an information dissemination and global community building tool.
We encourage all our BiodiverCities to complete this and add to the community of practice.
The survey is located at survey.sfenvironment.org.
