Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool

The Western Governors’ Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool (CHAT) is a cooperative effort of 16 Western states to provide the public and industry a high-level overview of “crucial habitat” across the West.

CHAT is a non-regulatory tool that provides a “30,000-foot view” of habitat for pre-planning that can be used for projects as varied as “macro-siting” energy corridors to comparing fish and wildlife habitat across the West.
