Department of the Interior (DOI): Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)
The Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative is 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.
The Western Alaska LCC covers a wide diversity of ecological conditions including permafrost dominated landscapes, complex river deltas, abundant volcanoes, and forests. The mission of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is to promote coordination, dissemination, and development of applied science to inform landscape level conservation, including terrestrial-marine linkages, in the face of a changing climate and related stressors.
