and how it is being implemented in America.
The U.S. Geological Survey has been tracking the protected status of our lands for many years through the Gap Analysis Project (GAP). They categorize the land into four levels depending on the protected status.
Gap 1, the dark green colored areas, are the most protected and include National Parks and Wilderness areas.
Gap 2 (the next darkest green color) includes lands considered permanently protected, such as conservation easements in perpetuity on private lands.
Gap 3 (lightest green color) are largely federal lands that are productively used.
Gap 4, (light grey) are areas with no federal, state or land trust conservation protection. These are largely private lands, where American grow a significant amount of our nation's food and fiber.
