George Wright Forum highlights LCCs

A special edition of the journal of the George Wright Society features on article on Landscape Conservation Cooperatives co-authored by North Atlantic LCC Steering Committee member Amanda Babson.

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.  

The article titled Landscape Conservation Cooperatives: Working Beyond Boundaries to Tackle Large-Scale Conservation Challenges was co-authored by North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative Steering Committee member Amanda Babson, Coastal Landscape Adaptation Coordinator for the Northeast Region of the National Park Service.

On Friday, October 7th, Babson will deliver a presentation on the contributions of the North Atlantic LCC to big-picture natural and cultural resource conservation during a day-long symposium at the Peabody Essex Museum called Scaling Up: New Strategies for Landscape-scale Conservation
