The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) brings together researchers, planners and managers to develop solutions for the most vexing problems in natural and cultural resource landscape-scale conservation. We do this by:
- Working across political and organizational boundaries to create opportunities for collaboration on important conservation issues.
- Developing science-based information and tools for managers.
- Helping partners to integrate traditional knowledge into their plans and strategies.
- Building synergy among public and private conservation programs by providing a forum where partners can coordinate their activities.
Great Basin landscapes that sustain natural and cultural resources now and in the future.
The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative supports landscape-scale conservation, promotes science, and enables management based on traditional knowledge and science so human and ecological communities can respond and adapt to climate and land use change.
- Great Basin communities develop mutually agreed upon landscape-scale conservation strategies and deliver conservation actions guided by those strategies.
- The Great Basin is more resilient to climate change and other landscape-scale stressors because of increased collaboration, optimized conservation investments and efforts aligned to a common vision.
- Traditional knowledge and contemporary science are shared and/or integrated, as appropriate, to further Great Basin conservation priorities and land stewardship.
- Communication and understanding about science, management and cultural resources are enhanced and this information is accessible and discoverable by the broader conservation community.
