Natural Heritage Reviews are conducted by the Missouri Department of Conservation on request in order to assess proposed project sites and adjacent lands. Reviews determine whether potential projects pose conservation concerns; i.e., whether they will impact endangered species habitats or other protected areas. Heritage reviews are normally sought by private or public projects seeking federal funding or permits. Such projects are required to investigate and plan for potential impacts to rare or endangered species in accordance with the federal Endangered Species Act or other statutes. However, anyone about to undertake a project and wanting to know if records indicate nearby sites of conservation concerns may request a heritage review.
