Climate Change Doesn’t Respect Lines on a Map

What are landscape conservation cooperatives?

Seeking to “address the impacts of accelerating climate change on wildlife and the habitats upon which they depend,” the U.S. Department of the Interior has created a national collaborative strategy for strategic habitat conservation on the landscape level, seeking to “put the right science in the right places.”

Landscape conservation cooperatives, or LCCs, are self-directed, applied conservation science partnerships that will take a bigger view than any single organization or agency can do independently to address national-scale stressors, including climate change.

This video (4:08) from the USFWS Northeast Region tells the story.
