Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative


The Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is one of 22 LCCs nationwide established by the Department of the Interior to better integrate science and management to address climate change and related issues. The Great Basin LCC is a self-directed partnership between bureaus and others involved in natural resource management and conservation.

In broad terms, the Great Basin LCC helps link and integrate science information providers with resource managers and science users; bring additional DOI resources to bear on landscape-scale conservation issues and opportunities; and helps to apply science and facilitate coordination on a wide range of efforts to respond to climate change, invasive species, wildfires, human development and other stressors across the Great Basin.

-Focus science and management actions to sustain natural resources in the context of changing environmental conditions.
