Southeast Resilient Landscapes Fund uses indicator to select focus area in the Greater Pee Dee

Many of you may remember that one of your cooperative's landscapes indicators (resilient biodiversity hotspots) is based on The Nature Conservancy's (TNC) Terrestrial Resilience Project. The new Southeast Resilient Landscapes Fund recently used the same information to select three focus areas (including the Greater Pee River area) for supporting land protection projects. It's great to [...]
