Project Description

This project is a DOI-led collaborative effort involving all RESTORE Council Members and the Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) partnerships in the Gulf Coast Region (GCR). This project will develop a suite of tools that Council Members can use to identify and evaluate land conservation opportunities in the GCR that offer the greatest potential for shared economic and ecosystem benefits. These tools may also be used by Council Members, as appropriate, in the development of land conservation projects in the GCR.
