This map displays the location of all Landscape Conservation Designs (LCD), as set by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. Combining geospatial data, biological information, and models, each LCD identifies opportunities to protect species, habitats, and environmental processes across an entire landscape. An LCD can offer guidance for organizations and agencies working at different scales in the same area, and can help foster collaboration among them to achieve shared conservation goals. LCDs are often described as living spatial plans or blueprints to conserve natural and cultural resources for future generations.
