Effective land conservation efforts help species and humans thrive.
Indicators related to land conservation are under development. In the near future, we hope to share information and maps that measure the number of acres in the coastal region identified for land and water conservation (i.e., acres protected and managed for wildlife, natural areas, and conservation easements), as well as share information about critical habitats and the impact conservation strategies are having on select threatened species. We hope to inform local and regional strategies that advance the GCC land conservation goal of, “Protecting, connecting, and enhancing environments for coastal plants and animals to adapt to changes in sea level and benefit the community.”
In the meantime, check out what these organizations and agencies are doing for land conservation throughout Georgia’s coast:
Protect, connect, and enhance environments for coastal plants and animals to adapt to changes in sea level and benefit the community.
Maintain thriving, working landscapes and waterfronts that support the sustainable production of food and fiber for our communities.
Cultivate opportunities to enjoy and recreate in the special places and historic communities along Georgia’s coast.
Promote economic development that respects natural environments and preserves the character of our coastal communities.
