Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are self-directed partnerships that provide science and support for conservation and sustainable-resource management to address landscape-level challenges or stressors, such as climate change. The five Alaska LCCs are at various stages of development, but all have conducted science and management needs assessments to identify region-specific priorities. Alaska and northwest Canada LCCs have funded numerous projects targeted at filling identified science and management information needs. For each Alaska LCC, we will give examples of projects, priorities, and their role in facilitating communication and collaboration among organizations, across disciplines, and across jurisdictional boundaries.
