Aquatic Connectivity project kicks off

The South Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Assessment project kicked off with a team meeting in Atlanta in January.  This project aims to evaluate aquatic connectivity in the SALCC region by assessing barriers, primarily dams, for the potential ecological benefit that would be had by mitigating them through removal or other passage project.  The kickoff meeting provided the project team, consisting of members from SARP and The Nature Conservancy’s Eastern Division Conservation Science group,…

Integrating conservation planning across LCCs - ACF Basin example

The Apalachicola/Chattahoochee/Flint (ACF) River Basin lies within the states of Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. The South Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCCs share the majority of this system with a small section crossing into the Appalachian LCC. To ensure that conservation planning is consistent across this important river basin, an ad-hoc group representing the respective LCC steering committees worked through a simplified Structured Decision Making (SDM) process to determine…
