Concern about the effects of climate change on native trout populations across the Northern Rockies has prompted significant research investments in recent years.
As part of the Great Northern LCC's charge to meet a strategic goal aimed to conserve a permeable landscape with connectivity across aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, members of its Advisory Team implemented a pilot project. The first phase of the pilot project included a workshop that was held this past April in Bozeman, Montana.
On behalf of the Department of the Interior and the President’s Generation Indigenous initiative, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is pleased to announce the Tribal Cooperative Landscape Conservation Program (Program), which will provide funding to support tribal youth internships and research internships for work directly related to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and ocean and coasta
CRAVe is a new online platform that houses information on assessments of the vulnerability of various natural and human resources to a changing climate.
Five years ago, the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative held its first Steering Committee meeting in Bozeman, MT. One of the key outcomes from the meeting was the need to develop a shared vision.
Accurate, high resolution information does not exist for consistent status and trend assessments of water quality and aquatic biotas throughout the >3,000,000 kilometers of rivers and streams in the U.S. Without that information, prioritization of limited resources for conservation and management proceeds inefficiently.
Federal agencies are increasingly supporting science and operational programs that provide context-specific data, information and tools for decision makers to improve practices and make risk management and adaptation decisions that are climate-and weather-sensitive.
The Heart of the Rockies Initiative conservation atlas is an interactive DataBasin portal that allows our conservation partners to access and apply a dynamic compilation of science products in landscape integrity, connectivity, and climate change impacts and responses. Portal data are derived from numerous agency, university, and NGO led research and planning efforts.
The Climate Shield website hosts geospatial data and related information that describes specific locations of cold-water refuge streams for native Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout across the northwestern U.S.
