Sky Island Springs Prioritization Tool

Sky Island Alliance created this tool to help land managers gain insight into the state of nearly 4,000 springs in southern Arizona. It’s a database, conservation-science model, and dynamic map that allows users to compare the relative conservation value, level of threat, and spatial isolation of springs from other perennial water sources. With our map, users can compare the condition and risk of springs across public and private lands and use this info to guide conservation efforts. Version 1.0 includes only springs in the U.S. portion of the Sky Islands, but we plan to expand future versions to include springs in Mexico.
