North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative

The Department of the Interior and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are facilitating a coordinated network of LCCs across the United States, to address major environmental and human-related factors that limit fish and wildlife populations at the broadest of scales, including developing adaptation strategies in response to climate change. The science provided by these partnerships will inform biological planning and conservation design, and help direct research and monitoring necessary to inform decisions about conservation delivery.

The Northeast Region will lead the development of the North Atlantic LCC in 2010, while also beginning development of the Appalachian LCC. The Northeast Region will also be supporting the development of the Great Lakes and South Atlantic LCC. The region is building upon strong partnerships to create the North Atlantic LCC, which, guided by the principles of strategic habitat conservation (SHC), will develop and communicate landscape-scale scientific information to shape conservation across the Eastern Seaboard south to Virginia. The North Atlantic LCC will be part of a network of LCCs initiated by USFWS in 2010 that covers the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States, a geographic area that, when compared to other areas globally, is highly susceptible to impacts precipitated by climate change, including sea level rise and storm surges.
