A special issue of the George Wright Forum—the journal of the George Wright Society—focusing on landscape-scale conservation in North America features an article highlighting the unique role that Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) play in addressing conservation challenges that require coordination and collaboration across vast geographies.

The article points out that although there is precedent for efforts to conserve resources at large scales, LCCs are distinct in their multi-faceted approach. Rather than focus on a single species or resources, LCCs bring partners together to set targets for entire suites of resources and process that interact and function at landscape scales, all in the context of land-use and climate change.

Rua, Janet, and I from the South Atlantic LCC staff co-authored the article titled Landscape Conservation Cooperatives: Working Beyond Boundaries to Tackle Large-Scale Conservation Challenges, featuring a write-up on the South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint!
