Department of the Interior (DOI): South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)
The South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SALCC) is one of 21 LCCs established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes.
The SALCC will facilitate conservation planning and design across state boundaries in the South Atlantic Coastal Plain and Piedmont physiographic provinces, from southern Virginia to northern Florida. The efforts of the SALCC will supplement the State Wildlife Action Plans and provide better coverage for wider ranging species. It will also provide a broader geographic scale to address the effects of climate change and other critical challenges such as competition for water, wildlife disease, and exotic species invasion.
