    Grenada Project Management Office's Solution to Developing a Species List
    While developing information for ES-BEST, we constructed a special status species list for our project, which consists of two lakes in northern Mississippi. We began by checking out the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service web site for listed threatened and endangered species. After getting the federally listed species, we contacted the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, which oversees the Natural Heritage Program for Mississippi. They were able to give a more localized description of special status species in our area. Also, they asked us for a shape file format of our project boundary lines and were able to plot specific areas from their GIS database where special status species or their habitats occur. This information is updated frequently; however, it should not always be considered a definitive statement on the presence, absence or condition of biological elements on a particular site. The information can get your project going in the right direction and is very helpful, so check to see if your State participates in the Natural Heritage Program.
