The Southeast Region Inventory & Monitoring (I&M) Network is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System Inventory & Monitoring Initiative. Our network is designed to address the NWRS critical information needs and to help evaluate the effectiveness of conservation strategies implemented by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and conservation partners in the face of accelerating climate change and threats from other environmental stressors. We provide monitoring support, expertise, and advice to refuges and collaborate with partners to accomplish the mission of the NWRS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Our work area covers the National Wildlife Refuges within the entire Southeast Region, which is spread across 10 states stretching from the Appalachian Mountains south to the Caribbean islands and west to the Ozarks, including the southern half of the Mississippi River Basin. Within the Southeast region, there are 129 National Wildlife Refuges, totaling roughly 4 million acres, that we work with to implement inventory and monitoring efforts.
