The Mannahatta Project is proud to announce the launch of its new website, welikia.org, and if you are reading this page, then you area already here! We created this website to make information from the Mannahatta Project readily available to you, the public. This website has something for everyone– teachers and other educators, park rangers, environmental managers, urban planners, city developers, GIS professionals, architects, science students, scientists, researchers, residents of New York City and¬†tourists alike. With this website, you can: read about the history of the Mannahatta Project from its conception in the brain of landscape ecologist Dr. Eric Sanderson, obtain the Mannahatta elementary school level curriculum (free for download), access the Mannahatta Project’s scientific data (free for download), and explore Mannahatta (Manhattan 400 years ago) with our brand new,¬†interactive map — use it to see what the heart of NYC looked like before Europeans arrived, when this “island of many hills” was home to the Lenape people and full of wildlife and their wild habitats!
