The Aleutian and Bering Sea Islands Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ABSI -LCC) is one of 21 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) identified nationally to complete a network of LCCs across the nation. The LCC concept was formed as land and resource managers recognized that dealing with the potential effects from climate change will require a stronger level of collaboration. They are designed to provide connections between researchers and managers seeking to address large landscape and seascape concerns. By identifying opportunities for collaboration, providing additional science-based information to inform management decisions and by working with the Alaska Climate Science Center and other partners, the LCC will help managers anticipate and respond to climate driven changes.
