The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Eastern Tallgrass Prairie and Big Rivers Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is dedicated to addressing the conservation challenges of a heavily agricultural landscape that stretches across the nation’s heartland from southwest Ohio westward across to parts...
Managing the landscapes that provide our natural and cultural resources has become increasingly challenging. With the signing of Secretarial Order No. 3289, the Department of the Interior launched the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) to better integrate science and management to address climate change and other landscape scale issues. By building a network that is holistic, collaborative, adaptive, and grounded in science, LCCs are working to ensure the sustainability of our economy, land, water, wildlife, and cultural resources.

In an effort to forecast impacts of future climate change on North American birds, the National Audubon Society has generated a large set of spatial data to characterize climate suitability for individual bird species through time (2000, 2020, 2050, 2080) and across Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emissions scenarios (B2, A1B, A2) for both winter and summer seasons. These data offer broad spatial and temporal perspective on how species distributions may be influenced by climate change. They can be combined with knowledge of bird biology and other sources of spatial information to inform conservation planning, management, and communication about climate change effects on birds.

Protecting the nation’s natural and cultural resources and landscapes is essential to sustaining our quality of life and economy. Native fish and wildlife species depend on healthy rivers, streams, wetlands, forests, grasslands and coastal areas in order to thrive. Managing these natural and cultural resources and landscapes, however, has become increasingly complex. Land use changes and impacts such as drought, wildfire, habitat fragmentation, contaminants, pollution, invasive species, disease and a rapidly changing climate can threaten human populations as well as native species and their habitats. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are public-private partnerships that recognize these challenges transcend...

The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Upper Midwest and Great Lakes LCC, established in 2010, is focused on a diverse range of fish, wildlife and other natural resources that transcend existing state and international borders including the Great Lakes, North America’s largest freshwater resource,...

In broad terms, the Great Basin LCC helps link and integrate science providers with resource managers and decision-makers; brings additional federal resources to bear on landscape-scale conservation issues and opportunities; and helps to apply science and facilitate coordination on a wide range of efforts to respond to climate change, invasive species, wildfires, human development and other stressors across the Great Basin. Specific objectives and shared priorities will be determined by the partnership itself. The LCC is not intended to replace existing organizations already accomplishing conservation work in the Great Basin. The aim is to facilitate, enhance and inform that work.
The Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (PFLCC) is part of a national network of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives(LCCs). LCCs are applied conservation science partnerships among federal agencies, regional organizations, states, tribes, NGOs, private stakeholders, universities and other entities within a geographic area. They are designed to inform resource management decisions in an integrated fashion across landscapes at a broader scale than any individual partner’s responsibility. The partnership considers landscape-scale stressors, including climate change, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and water scarcity as it attempts to provide a vision for a landscape capable of sustaining...

The Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) encompasses over 280 million acres, includes parts of 6 states and 2 Canadian provinces, and must address issues that overlap with over 30 management and research entities. The data management framework will include options to deal with very large datasets as well as treatment of local data collection and project tracking efforts. The goal of the Landscape Conservation Cooperative process is to help resource managers address landscape-scale stressors. The issues facing these managers include habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity, as well as how these issues are accelerated by climate change. Addressing...
The Community Subsistence Information System (CSIS) hosted by the Division of Subsistence, Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) provides harvest data for over 270 communities. The Division of Subsistence has been collecting harvest data since 1981 for resources harvested by each community including large land mammals, marine mammals and migratory waterfowl. Data are organized by community and year of study with different levels of data available for each rural community. The partnership between ADF&G and Alaska’s Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) has made data available as a searchable, mapbased interface. By creating a spatial interface for the CSIS database, managers and stakeholders will be able...
The Appalachian LCC: Promotes collaboration and increases funding and research capacity among partners to address the environmental threats that is beyond the ability of any one agency. Is a trusted source of information that develops the tools, methods, and data resource managers need to design and deliver landscape-scale conservation. Leverages funding, staff, and resources from all partners to develop cost-effective science and conservation that benefits human communities and ecosystems. Develops and implements conservation of large connected areas that will enhance and sustain the ecological, economic, and historical value of the Appalachian region. Work leads to effective conservation that generates clean...

The Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a collaborative, multi-jurisdictional partnership that works to enhance the ability of organizations and communities to understand, manage, and adapt to our changing landscape. Our vision is a dynamic landscape that maintains functioning, resilient boreal ecosystems and associated cultural resources.

The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Plains and Prairie Potholes LCC is dedicated to the conservation of a landscape unparalleled in importance to a vast array of unique species whose populations are in steep decline. The Plains and Prairie Potholes LCC includes three main sub-units, the Prairie...

The region within the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative (Gulf Coast Prairie LCC) faces many challenges that threaten both wildlife and their habitat within this diverse landscape. The once extensive grassland system has been impacted by urban and agricultural development. Large river systems struggle to maintain watershed integrity and base flows. Coastal systems fight the effects of reduced freshwater inflows. Other threats, such as climate change, pollution, invasive species and disease, also put a strain on native species and habitats.

The North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a shared management-science partnership between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Geological Survey, states, and British Columbia, Canadian and federal resource management agencies, tribes, NGOs, universities and other entities within a geographic area.
