LCC Network

Catskill Mountains, NYThe ABSI LCC is part of a network of 22 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives that cover most of North America and include islands in the Pacific and Caribbean.  Although some LCCs were already in existence at the time, the concept of a National network was established by Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar in September 2009 (DOI Secretarial Order 3289).  Phased in over a three-year period, the development of the National LCC network was summarized by Austen (2011).

Newcomers to these Landscape Conservation Cooperatives often wonder about how the geographic boundaries of the LCC network were determined.  In June 2009, a team of representatives from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey met at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, to "develop a geographic framework which would provide a spatial context for biological planning and conservation design in support of conservation delivery" (Millard et al. 2012).  The outcome of this workshop formed the initial basis for LCC boundaries.  These boundaries are not set in stone however, and a process exists for modification between adjacent LCCs.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service coordinates the activities of the LCC Network.  The National LCC Coordinator  is Elsa Haubold.  A full list of the 22 LCCs, along with their Coordinators and Web Sites, appears below.
