To enhance the chances of restoring and protecting Puerto Rico’s beaches by synthesizing guidelines and procedures on beach characterization and profiling, planting, fertilization, irrigation, maintenance, monitoring, etc. and working to identify, inventory, and prioritize beaches that need and can accommodate stabilization with vegetation, or can become sources of plants for nursery propagation and planting. Information will include all permit requirements for beach restoration projects, including those associated with beaches used by sea turtles for nesting. Within the selected prioritized beaches the CAT will develop an education & awareness program, to demonstrate benefits, address needs & expectations and promote...

The mission of the Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative is to provide science and technology for conservation planning and action leading to a mutually desired landscape of the future (Nassauer and Opdam 2008, USFWS 2012). An essential component of developing a shared vision is a common understanding of the current land and seascape characteristics. This includes the distribution of Trust resources, the condition of Trust resource populations and their habitats, the governance structure impacting them, assessments of threats and vulnerabilities – tied to information on land uses, climate, ecosystem characteristics (e.g., stream flow), and potential future scenarios (Strategy 2012). This is a potentially...
Project Vision and BackgroundThe Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CLCC) is developing shared conservation priorities to guide their individual and collective conservation actions. The long term goal is a shared vision of land and seascapes of the future where cultural and natural resources most important to the greatest number of people are sustained and strengthened. Our approach to reach that shared vision is through the collective development and implementation of landscape conservation design (LCD; Campellone et al. 2014 ) The CLCC will use a multi-stakeholder structured decision-making (SDM) process to determine values associated with specific resources – or fundamental objectives, and associated...
The Protected natural areas of the U.S. Virgin Islands, compiled and identified by the U.S. Virgin Islands Gap Analysis Project (USVIGAP), display terrestrial protected natural areas designated for natural resource conservation in the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as areas with government regulation that have the potential to protect natural resources. The protection of natural areas is an essential step in conserving biodiversity and maintaining ecosystem services. The benefits and services provided by natural areas include clean water and air, sustainable wildlife populations and habitats, stable slopes and productive soils, genetic reservoirs, recreational opportunities and spiritual refugia. These benefits are...

Purpose of the PA-CAT:To provide information and guidance in support of establishment and management of comprehensive protected areas systems in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.Role/Tasks:Short-term• Build an open-access national protected areas database consistent with the IUCN classification system applied to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands and determine what lands and marine extents are currently under protection and by what mechanisms.• Develop a conservation strategy that standardizes the language used for discussing protected areas in Puerto Rico, details the existing and potential mechanisms and tactics for protection (i.e., acquisition, easements, land use, donation) based on the database,...

The conservation community of the Caribbean can feel small, at times, or as vast as the ocean that surrounds us. In a growingly complex world of environmental and social obstacles it is imperative to work collaboratively across ecosystems, scales, disciplines and methodologies. Protecting natural and cultural resources is essential to sustaining our health and quality of life. People, along with the fish and wildlife, rely on clean water and the benefits of healthy rivers, streams, wetlands, forests, grasslands, coasts, coral reefs, estuaries and oceans in order to thrive. Equally as diverse and vibrant as our ecosystems are the Caribbean peoples, histories, and cultures that are arguably just as threatened as our...

The Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CLCC) recently completed the CLCC Science Strategy: Mission Alignment to outline shared conservation values among CLCC partner entities. After meeting this important benchmark, Steering Committee (SC) members and outside reviewers suggested that the CLCC adopt a structured approach for integrating shared values and providing greater context and guidance for Science Strategy planning and implementation. This report summarizes the early design and development phases of a Structured Decision Making (SDM) approach applied during a June 2015 SC face-to-face meeting (hereafter referred to as the “CLCC SDM Workshop”) and outlines the next steps in the process.SDM is a formal,...

The Southeast Conservation Blueprint is a map of important areas for conservation and restoration across the Southeast and Caribbean. The Blueprint categories represent the level of value—high or medium—of healthy natural resources and their potential to benefit fish, wildlife and plants. The Blueprint is the primary product of the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS). Through SECAS, diverse partners are working together to design and achieve a connected network of lands and waters that supports thriving fish and wildlife populations and improved quality of life for people across the southeastern United States and the Caribbean. This product record includes the following:Southeast Blueprint v3.0 dataset...

This report represents a synthesis of 40 existing plans and strategies from our partnerorganizations and others, input from the greater U.S. Caribbean conservation community, andsynthesis by the Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CLCC) Science Plan AdvisoryTeam. The goals of the Science Strategy: Mission Alignment are to (1) identify sharedconservation objectives and (2) serve as a foundation for a broad science strategy which willguide collaborative actions for natural and cultural resource conservation in light of globalchange. As an outcome of the synthesis process leading to this report, the CLCC SteeringCommittee has agreed on five priorities that we consider are of the greatest shared conservationimportance...
Coastal change is an important issue for all coastal regions of the LCC Network, yet there are vast differences in the tools and information available across coastal regions. While the key uncertainties may differ across the Network, all coastal LCCs have been working to advance coastal resilience and adaptation. In some coastal areas, there are significant resources available to communities to understand coastal change and the discussions are now focused upon adaptation and incorporating natural resource considerations. In other regions, few tools exist for either communities or resource managers to address observed and predicted coastal change. The ultimate goal for LCCs is to have decision makers informed about...

Funds under this award are to develop a georeferenced database of the stream crossing structures located within the CLCC and USFWS Habitat Restoration Programs Focal Delivery Watersheds in Puerto Rico: Río Grande de Arecibo and Río Herrera. This information will be valuable to prioritize the removal or enhancement of stream crossing structures for the benefit of the native aquatic fauna and to improve the ecosystem integrity. This initiative will also complement other landscape and multispecies that the Service and the CLCC are conducting in the northcentral Karst region to benefit Federal trust species. In addition, after the implementation of this project we expect to develop (e.g. Story Map) and updated tools...
