Statewide Assessments and Strategies
Desired Future Outcome

Since New Mexico is a diverse state with a variety of habitats, it is reasonable that there would be multiple desired future outcomes for its key habitats and SGCN. However, the overriding desired future outcome driving biodiversity conservation in New Mexico is that our key habitats persist in the condition, connectivity, and quantity necessary to sustain viable and resilient populations of resident SGCN and host a variety of land uses with reduced resource use conflicts. More spatially specific desired future outcomes are provided in Chapter 5 for the key habitats within each ecological framework.
