This webinar originally aired on 12 February 2015.
Conservation challenges of the 21st century are complex and include both local challenges and widespread threats such as drought, climate change, and large-scale habitat fragmentation. These complex threats impact entire landscapes and seascapes and multiple resources simultaneously and are too large for any single organization to meet alone. The Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) provide a forum for States, Tribes, Federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities and other groups to work together in a new way. LCCs provide scientific and technical expertise for conservation planning at landscape scales and promote collaboration among their members in defining shared conservation goals. In this webinar, Dr. Elsa Haubold, National Coordinator for the Landscape Conservation Cooperative Network, will discuss the LCC Network’s mission and objectives, the work of its partners, and how oceans are integrated into the LCC Network.

This webinar was presented by Elsa Haubold of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and it was cosponsored by NOAA National Marine Protected Areas Center, the EBM Tools Network, and MPA News.
