The Northeast Region's regional scientist was named the 2016 GreenGov Presidential Awards Climate Champion for his leadership of the Department of the Interior’s Hurricane Sandy Response Team.
As he prepares to transition to a new position with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Resources Office and Western New England Complex in October, Andrew Milliken reflects on milestones in his journey as the coordinator of the North Atlantic LCC.
In addition to the departure of LCC Coordinator Andrew Milliken, we would like to acknowledge a number of other big transitions for the people who make up the LCC team, including Coastal Resilience Coordinator Megan Tyrrell’s acceptance of a new position with Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve starting in mid-October.
In 2015, the LCC redoubled efforts to deliver science to decision makers. Our annual report highlights how this information is being used to address conservation needs across the region in the words of partners.
The Nature Conservancy's new Northeast Lakes and Ponds Classification System will enable more effective conservation of aquatic ecosystems in the region.
By providing a standard mapping classification for lakes and ponds, the Nature Conservancy's Northeast Lakes and Ponds Classification System will help ensure more effective conservation of aquatic ecosystems in the region.
Launched in June, the North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative is already helping strengthen efforts to restore aquatic connectivity across the region by supporting a network of partners with shared resources.
Landscape conservation design projects advance goals outlined in national strategy for climate adaptation
The innovative landscape conservation efforts supported by the North Atlantic LCC are using the best available science to identify ecologically connected networks of resilient lands and waters, an approach recommended in the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy.
Research findings inform decision-support tools to help brook trout stay cool in the face of warming climate
Which headwater streams can continue to meet the needs of Eastern brook trout in the context of climate change? A new model will help decision makers identify prime habitat for cold-water dependent species based on predictions about climate change.
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) releases its review of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, which concludes that a landscape approach is needed to meet the nation’s conservation challenges and that the LCCs provide a framework for addressing that need.
A new report from The Northeast Climate Science Center outlines numerous processes, tools, and potential partnerships that can help state natural resource managers integrate climate science into the 10-year updates of wildlife actions plans, and includes several projects supported by the North Atlantic LCC.
The revised map more accurately depicts the geographies of the 22 LCCs across the continent, including the North Atlantic LCC.
North Atlantic/Gulf Coast LCC Coastal Resilience Research Associate, Emily Powell, Ph.D., will begin her position in mid-August.
