The Peninsular Florida LCC focuses on science that can enable natural and cultural resource managers to make informed conservation decisions based on predicted impacts of different landscape scale stressors, including climate change. The most recent science project supported by the PFLCC is the development of scenarios that feature three simulated future time horizons - 2020, 2040 and 2060 - and possible trajectories of future landscape change for each. While the scenarios are not meant to be used as blueprints for the future, they can be valuable tools for anyone involved in conservation planning. Read more of the support summary here.
Florida Cooperative Conservation Blueprint (CCB). Given diverse interests and missions, what if we could all agree on what we would like Florida to look like in the next 50 years? What if we could all work from the same “blueprint”? That is the goal of the Cooperative Conservation Blueprint, a major multi-partner initiative led by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
The Gulf of Mexico Alliance, NOAA, Gulf Landscape Conservation Cooperatives and USGS Climate Science Centers are leading the Gulf Coast Vulnerability Assessment to better understand impacts to coastal ecosystems and species from climate change, sea level rise, and land use change. The project includes a regional assessment that lays the foundation for a vulnerability assessment of coastal habitats and species.
