An interactive map showing the different keystone species and their
ranges across the globe.
Earth is home to many diverse habitats, each with a distinctive
collection of plants and animals. But not every species has an
equal impact on the others around them. Sometimes, the presence or
absence of a single species can be the difference between a
balanced ecosystem and a destroyed one. We call these outsized
influencers “Keystone Species,” and they can be found
all over the world.
