The mission of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is to promote coordination, dissemination, and development of applied science to inform landscape level conservation, including terrestrial-marine linkages, in the face of a changing climate and related stressors.

The Western Alaska LCC, one of five LCCs in progress or planned for Alaska, was launched in 2010 in an early pilot stage. The Western AK LCC will share expertise and capacity to achieve common landscape conservation goals, bringing together federal, state, tribal, and local governments, academia, and other partners to develop tools, synthesize information, and provide a forum for collaboration to land and resource managers to understand and respond to climate change.
