Summary

In response to the threats of land use and changing environmental conditions, the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) and the Northeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (NEAFWA) coordinated a team of partners from 13 states, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, nongovernmental organizations, and universities, who worked for more than a year to develop a regional conservation design that provides a foundation for unified conservation action from Maine to Virginia.Drawing on the data and models generated by projects supported over the years by the North Atlantic LCC, and building on smaller-scale conservation designs in the region, Nature’s Network is an overarching design that represents both the culmination [...]

Purpose

In this project, State Fish and Wildlife Diversity Agencies are working together to establish Regional Conservation Opportunity Areas (RCOAs). RCOAs are spatially delineated places within the Northeast Region where actions to support or enhance populations of species of conservation need and their habitats are likely to be most effective. RCOAs can be used by the states and conservation partners to inform and guide land protection or habitat restoration actions for the benefit of fish and wildlife species of regional concern, especially considering large scale threats like climate change and land use change.

valueThis project incorporates products from many other projects previously or currently funded by the North Atlantic LCC, such as Designing Sustainable Landscapes, Extending the Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Map to Atlantic Canada, Forecasting Changes in Aquatic Systems and Resilience of Brook Trout, and Wildlife Habitat Models for Terrestrial Vertebrates. An independently functioning regional conservation plan and design, Connect the Connecticut http://connecttheconnecticut.org/ served as a pilot to Nature's Network.
