In conservation, the term 'Umbrella species' refers to a species that is chosen to plan conservation-related decisions, as the protection of this species indirectly leads to the protection of many other lesser species that share its habitat. Examples other than the tiger include the Northern Spotted Owls and the endangered Bay Checkerspot Butterfly.
