Department of the Interior (DOI): Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)
One of 21 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes, linking science and conservation. The currently participating bureaus are the Bureau of Land Management, Minerals Management Service, National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
The Arctic LCC is a self-directed conservation partnership among the federal, state, and local government agencies, Tribes, nongovernmental organizations, academic institutions and other entities operating within Arctic Alaska and northern Canada. The Arctic LCC will leverage funds, expertise and technology to provide the scientific and technical support necessary for maintaining abundant, diverse and healthy populations of fish, wildlife and plants across the Arctic.
