As part of the international network of heritage programs,
the Pennsylvania Natural Heritage Program (PNHP) compiles and
maintains data related to the Commonwealth's rare, threatened
and endangered plants and animals as well as unique natural
communities. This information can be used to guide conservation
efforts and land use planning.
