Miradi Share is a new cloud-based software system that enables conservation practitioners,
managers, and funders to design, manage, monitor, and learn from collections of related
projects that make up a program.
Have you ever tried to work on a Miradi project with multiple people and not known which version of
the project file had the most recent updates?
Have you ever wished you could scan diagrams or threat ratings in a bunch of Miradi files to find
guidance on the problem you are working on?
Have you ever wanted to share established projects across your organization and around the world?
is an Australian NGO managing a portfolio of
35 land reserves across the continent.
Over the past few years, Bush Heritage has adopted the Open Standards and Miradi Software to create
regularly updated management, monitoring and work plans for each of their reserves. Since their
reserve managers are located all across the continent, Bush Heritage central staff had to invent all
kinds of work-around mechanisms to enable different people in different locations to create,share,
and analyze the data in their Miradi files. With Miradi Share, Bush Heritage is now able to solve
As Annette Stewart of Bush Heritage says,
"In the past, we struggled to execute a full Adaptive
Management loop in our projects, in large part because we had an information management problem.
With Miradi we can more easily extract information and analyse our progress to report on whether we
are achieving what we aimed to do, and to identify what adaptations need to be made to the plan.
Miradi offers the glue that we needed."

Build support by linking project outcomes to program goals
Are you managing a portfolio of related conservation projects?
Do you ensure each project is planned and monitored in a comparable way?
Are you looking for ways to efficiently roll up and analyze information across projects?
When the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) set out to revise their 2015 State
Wildlife Action Plan, they were wrestling with all of these questions. A simple example of the
problem they faced: one region might track "breeding pairs of mountain lions" and the next
"individual adult puma." Identical indicators, yet the program would be unable to analyze and roll
up the information.
CDFW is developing individual Miradi plans for conservation targets in 39 terrestrial, freshwater,
and marine planning units. To ensure their data are compatible, program managers use Miradi Share to
develop common program templates to standardize threats, targets, strategies, resources, and many
other components of Miradi files.
Armand Gonzales of the CDFW says,
"Miradi desktop software helped us to develop conservation
strategies for each region of the State for our State Wildlife Action Plan 2015 update. Miradi Share
is allowing us to knit these strategies together, summarize, and roll-up to a broader landscape
context while still showing how each individual region contributes to our overall statewide

Improve efficiency by learning from others

As a funder, would it be helpful to see what projects are working in your area of interest?
What if conservation science had a library of standard conservation actions?
Miradi Share provides a key platform to enable conservation practitioners from around the world to
share information about their work with one another. For example, the US National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has made over 70 salmon recovery projects publicly available on
Miradi Share, most of which have detailed viability analyses that can serve as models for similar
We are also building powerful search tools into Miradi Share. As the number of publicly available
projects grows, Miradi Share will increasingly become a go-to resource for practitioners and funders
who want to find specific projects of interest for either collaboration or learning purposes.
Finally, Miradi Share is becoming a platform for new conservation tools. For example, the
Conservation Measures Partnership is using Miradi Share to house the new Conservation Actions and
Measures Library (CAML) . CAML is an open-source
library of Miradi results chains for the most common
conservation actions. CAML entries are organized by the IUCN-CMP classification of conservation
actions. As shown below, each action contains a generic results chain, as well as standard
objectives and indicators. These can be used as starting points for developing specific results
chains for your conservation program. They can also form the basis for selecting common indicators
to assess action effectiveness.
As Nick Salafsky, Co-Chair of the Conservation Measures Partnership says,
"In much the same way as
the Linnean Classification system is the foundation of the science of biology, or the periodic table
of the elements is the basis of the science of chemistry, CAML will hopefully provide a key
underpinning for the newly emerging science of conservation."
