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.

Denali Commission

"In Alaska, President Obama designated the Denali Commission as the lead Federal point of contact for Alaska Native coastal villages affected by coastal erosion, flooding, and related problems driven by climate change. The Commission hosts the first-ever catalog of grants and technical assistance available to Alaska Native villages. To build capacity in rural villages, the Commission is transforming the catalog to make it more accessible for village administrators and has funded project managers or project coordinators in each of the four most imminently threatened communities.

Department of the Interior (DOI): Aleutian & Bering Sea Islands Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)

The Aleutian & Bering Sea Islands Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ABSI-LCC) is one of 21 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.   They are designed to provide connections between researchers and managers seeking to address large landscape and seascape concerns.

North Pacific Fisheries Management Council

The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) is one of eight regional councils established by the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act in 1976 (which has been renamed the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act) to oversee management of the nation's fisheries. With jurisdiction over the 900,000 square mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) off Alaska, the Council has primary responsibility for groundfish management in the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) and Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI), including cod, pollock, flatfish, mackerel, sablefish, and rockfish species harvested mainly by trawlers, hook and line longliners and pot fishermen.

Southwest Fisheries Science Center - NOAA Fisheries Service

The Southwest Fisheries Science Center is the research arm of NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service in the Southwest Region. Center scientists conduct biological, economic, and oceanographic research on marine resources throughout the Pacific Ocean and in the Southern Ocean off Antarctica, to ensure that these populations remain healthy and at sustainable levels. Responsibilities include maintaining healthy fish stocks for commercial, recreational and subsistence fishing; conserving and recovering populations of protected species; sustaining ecosystem services; and coordinating with domestic and international organizations to implement and monitor fishery agreements and treaties.

 

 

Organization

U.S. Forest Service Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center (WWETAC)

The Western Wildland Environmental Threat Assessment Center (WWETAC) is a unit of the Pacific Northwest Research Station. The Center was created to predict, detect, and assess existing and potential environmental threats to western wildlands. Information will be developed and shared about forest impacts such as invasive plants, potential insect outbreaks, the appearance of invasive insect threats, the appearance of new pathogens (such as sudden oak death), and other threats. There are many WWETAC climate change related research projects, impact assessments, modeling tools, short courses, as well as affiliated workshops available on their website.
