Service Description: The design of EFAs was based primarily on priority native habitats and refined using Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) locations, and was built upon other planning efforts that address conservation priorities in the state. Aquatic EFAs were based on The Nature Conservancy’s priority streams and by the Special Aquatic Life Use (SALU) streams defined by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, with some exclusions based on expert opinion. The selected streams were buffered by 100 m; 12-digit HUCs that intersect the buffers comprise the Aquatic EFAs. Although EFAs have been selected for the purpose of concentrating conservation measures, conservation actions should not be limited to EFAs if opportunities arise in other areas. Areas not in an EFA may still provide conservation opportunities and merit. For additional information see the 2015 SWAP:

Map Name: Kansas Ecological Focus Areas


All Layers and Tables

Layers: Description: Kansas' State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP), previously known as the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Plan, provides a comprehensive vision for managing Kansas' fish, wildlife, and wildlife habitats. A major focus of the 2015 revision of the SWAP was the development of geographically explicit areas in which to address conservation issues. These areas, referred to as Ecological Focus Areas (EFAs), represent aquatic and terrestrial landscapes where conservation actions can be applied for maximum benefit to all Kansas wildlife. Each EFA includes a suite of SGCN and priority habitats and a unique set of conservation actions designed to address the specific resource concerns facing these species and habitats. Each EFA also includes one or more protected areas that can serve as demonstration sites for conservation actions.
