The South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint is a living spatial plan to conserve natural and cultural resources for future generations. It identifies shared conservation priorities across the South Atlantic region. The third iteration of the Blueprint, Version 2.1, was released in August 2016.
Landscape Conservation Cooperatives use a collaborative approach to identify landscape scale conservation solutions. LCCs work across jurisdictional and political boundaries to work with partners to: meet unfilled conservation needs, develop decision support tools, share data and knowledge, and facilitate and foster partnerships.
As part of a shared science strategy, LCCs coordinate closely with the National Climate Change and Wildlife Center and the eight regional Climate Science Centers.
Managers and scientists are working together in a new project to understand and optimally manage conservation lands along the Atlanta and Mississippi Flyways to support continental populations of waterbirds.
Marshes are a critical habitat for a diversity of fauna and the ecological functioning of the coast.
The objective is to create a hydrologic foundation for detailed assessment of human and climate impacts on stream and river flows, including the impacts of hydrologic alterations on aquatic habitats.
Version 2.0 Data Viewer for the South Atlantic
Project Goals and Objectives:
1) increase the utility of the International Shorebird Survey (ISS) for making shorebird management and conservation decisions within the South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative, and
This project provides technical assistance in integrating the Waterfall instream flow models developed for the South Atlantic LCC by RTI with the PRMS models being developed in the neighboring Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC.
This project includes the following tasks:
Eastern Tallgrass Prairie and Big Rivers LCC is one of 22 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) that serve as a forum for collaboration among many diverse partners working together to meet shared natural and cultural resource priorities for current and future generations.
Project to provide information to support the GBLCC's implementation of a new project tracking system.
Recent drought, change agents and the spectrum of greater management needs have highlighted the relative dearth of in situ weather and climate measurement stations in the Great Basin. Thus, interest has grown in supplementing or initiating atmospheric and hydrologic measurements.
This project will address limited tribal capacity for vulnerability assessment by providing guidance and data tailored to the needs and capacities of Northwest and Great Basin tribes. Specifically, the project will:
This project builds upon the springs and seeps inventory funded by the Desert LCC.
This project will:
The purpose of this project is to develop a series of high resolution (1:24,000 scale) digital wetland maps and associated data to support conservation planning in Nevada.
Workshops that provide tribal representatives with an introduction to planning for climate change impacts.
The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center (ACRC) lead a second workshop to develop cross-boundary geospatial and climate data sets in support of regional conservation applications in the coastal temperate rainforest zone of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia.
A searchable database of climate change researchers, research and tools was developed. This effort was done in cooperation with a similar funded effort by the University of Alaska, SE to cover the North Pacific LCC geographic range.
The North Pacific LCC co-sponsored the April 2012 science symposium - Coastal Temperate Rainforests: Integrating Communities, Climate Science, and Resource Management.
The North Pacific LCC helped sponsor the Second Annual Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference. This two day, regional conference included a panel discussion on federal climate science endeavors in the Pacific NW.
The Services goal with this project is to bridge the gap between guidance documents and field staff who develop Habitat Conservation Plans (HCPs).
WDFW will use funds provided by the NPLCC to integrate climate change impacts and implications into our State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) Revision.
Research on coastal change in Cook Inlet and South East Alaska has increased rapidly in recent years, making it challenging to track existing projects, understand their cumulative insights, gauge remaining research gaps, and prioritize future work.
Building on currently available resources and on the prior climate adaptation experiences of our team,
which includes tribal staff and a cultural anthropologist who is also an enrolled member of the
Practitioners struggle with how to identify, prioritize, and implement climate adaptation actions
that can effectively reduce vulnerability; these decisions may be more easily made and successfully
The Jamestown SKlallam and Port Gamble SKlallam tribes, and many other tribes in the Pacific
Northwest, rely on ESA listed fish species for subsistence as well as cultural and economic practices.
The State of Alaska has more coastline than the rest of the United States
combined and extends from the high Arctic to the temperate rainforests and marine waters of
Southeast Alaska. Climate change impacts are unique in the Southeast Alaska region and are longer
This project, with funding support by the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative and
partners, will address the need to better understand the impact that climate change will have on our
Background: Yellow-cedar (Callitropsis nootkatensis) is an economically and culturally important tree of the North Pacific coastal rainforest, ranging from northern California through Southeast Alaska.
The forum will have two major goals:. First, to share the successes and learnings of past LCC investments on the subjects of Traditional Ecological Knowledge, subsistence resources, and climate adaptation plans.
