Who We Are
The inter-continental network of 22 Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, of which Gulf Coast Prairie LCC is a part, was launched in 2009 by the U.S. Department of the Interior, primarily through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Geological Survey.
Since that time, individual LCCs have brought people and resources together for strategic advantage, strengthening the collective impact of the conservation community and other organizations with a shared interest in the lasting protection of our natural world.
The Gulf Coast Prairie LCC steering committee now represents 17 organizations, including government agencies, American Indian tribes, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions. Many additional public and private partners are involved in science projects, work groups, and related activities.
