North Atlantic LCC Operations and Development Plan

The Northeast Region has elected to emphasize development of the North Atlantic LCC in 2010, while also supporting efforts to begin LCC development within the south Atlantic, Appalachian and Great Lakes geographic areas. The region is building upon strong partnerships to create the North Atlantic LCC, which, guided by the principles of strategic habitat conservation (SHC), will develop and communicate landscape-scale scientific information to shape conservation across the Eastern Seaboard south to Virginia. The North Atlantic LCC will be part of a network of LCCs initiated by USFWS in 2010 that covers the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States, a geographic area that, when compared to other areas globally, is highly susceptible to impacts precipitated by climate change, including sea level rise and storm surge events.
