Nature’s Network helps guide conservation decisions
By David Eisenhauer, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
The North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Collaborative (LCC) – including partners from 13 states, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and universities – has launched Nature’s Network, a science-based “road map” that can help inform decisions and actions for conserving lands and waters throughout the Northeast.
Nature’s Network identifies a network of places that help define the highest conservation priorities in the region to sustain natural resources and benefits for future generations. More than a map, it offers a suite of decision-support tools created with input from nearly 30 organizations using innovative modeling approaches developed by the University of Massachusetts Amherst and The Nature Conservancy.
