In an effort to forecast impacts of future climate change on North American birds, the National Audubon Society has generated a large set of spatial data to characterize climate suitability for individual bird species through time (2000, 2020, 2050, 2080) and across Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emissions scenarios (B2, A1B, A2) for both winter and summer seasons. These data offer broad spatial and temporal perspective on how species distributions may be influenced by climate change. They can be combined with knowledge of bird biology and other sources of spatial information to inform conservation planning, management, and communication about climate change effects on birds.

Protecting the nation’s natural and cultural resources and landscapes is essential to sustaining our quality of life and economy. Native fish and wildlife species depend on healthy rivers, streams, wetlands, forests, grasslands and coastal areas in order to thrive. Managing these natural and cultural resources and landscapes, however, has become increasingly complex. Land use changes and impacts such as drought, wildfire, habitat fragmentation, contaminants, pollution, invasive species, disease and a rapidly changing climate can threaten human populations as well as native species and their habitats. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are public-private partnerships that recognize these challenges transcend...

The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is a partnership among public and private groups working to meet large-scale conservation challenges across five states. We promote management based upon science and traditional knowledge that enables human and natural communities to respond and adapt to ongoing change. Our partners include a variety of groups committed to conservation, such as Native American tribes, universities, non-governmental organizations, and federal, state and local government agencies. The Great Basin LCC ScienceBase Community exists to archive project information, data and products from our research projects and accessibly publicly. Since 2011, we have supported 50 such landscape-scale...

The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Upper Midwest and Great Lakes LCC, established in 2010, is focused on a diverse range of fish, wildlife and other natural resources that transcend existing state and international borders including the Great Lakes, North America’s largest freshwater resource,...

The Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) encompasses over 280 million acres, includes parts of 6 states and 2 Canadian provinces, and must address issues that overlap with over 30 management and research entities. The data management framework will include options to deal with very large datasets as well as treatment of local data collection and project tracking efforts. The goal of the Landscape Conservation Cooperative process is to help resource managers address landscape-scale stressors. The issues facing these managers include habitat fragmentation, genetic isolation, spread of invasive species, and water scarcity, as well as how these issues are accelerated by climate change. Addressing...

The Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a collaborative, multi-jurisdictional partnership that works to enhance the ability of organizations and communities to understand, manage, and adapt to our changing landscape. Our vision is a dynamic landscape that maintains functioning, resilient boreal ecosystems and associated cultural resources.

The sustainability of natural and cultural resources and landscapes are important to quality of life and local economies. Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) address large scale natural resource challenges that transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a networked approach to conservation— holistic, collaborative, and grounded in science – to ensure the sustainability of America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources. The Plains and Prairie Potholes LCC is dedicated to the conservation of a landscape unparalleled in importance to a vast array of unique species whose populations are in steep decline. The Plains and Prairie Potholes LCC includes three main sub-units, the Prairie...

The California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CA LCC) is a management-science partnership created to inform and promote integrated science, natural resource management and conservation to address impacts of climate change and other stressors within and across ecosystems. California Supports diverse and thriving ecosystems through lasting cooperative conservation partnerships.

The region within the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative (Gulf Coast Prairie LCC) faces many challenges that threaten both wildlife and their habitat within this diverse landscape. The once extensive grassland system has been impacted by urban and agricultural development. Large river systems struggle to maintain watershed integrity and base flows. Coastal systems fight the effects of reduced freshwater inflows. Other threats, such as climate change, pollution, invasive species and disease, also put a strain on native species and habitats.

The North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a shared management-science partnership between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Geological Survey, states, and British Columbia, Canadian and federal resource management agencies, tribes, NGOs, universities and other entities within a geographic area.

The Desert LCC encompasses portions of five states as well as portions of at least ten states in Northern Mexico. The area is topographically complex, including three different deserts (Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan), grasslands and valley bottoms, and isolated mountain ranges known as the “Sky Islands.” Elevations range from near sea level to over 10,000 ft. The richness of the topography supports equally diverse species composition and habitat for native plants, fish and wildlife species, including many endemic species that are extremely susceptible to climate change impacts. The Desert LCC also includes several large river systems, including the Lower Colorado, Gila, Rio Grande, San Pedro, and Verde Rivers....

The North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative provides a partnership in which the private, state, tribal and federal conservation community works together to address increasing land use pressures and widespread resource threats and uncertainties amplified by a rapidly changing climate. The partners and partnerships in the cooperative address these regional threats and uncertainties by agreeing on common goals for land, water, fish, wildlife, plant and cultural resources and jointly developing the scientific information and tools needed to prioritize and guide more effective conservation actions by partners toward those goals.

The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers in their efforts to conserve plant, fish and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships—known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs)—that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity. The Great Plains LCC identifies science priorities for the region and helps foster science that addresses these priorities, thus supporting wildlife conservation efforts throughout the Great Plains....

The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Inter-Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC), Greater Sage-Grouse Initiative, and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) funded projects to further sage-grouse conservation efforts. The LCC's involved include the Great Northern, The Great Basin, the Plains and Prairie Potholes, and the Southern Rockies.
