This funding announcement is part of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative's Terrestrial Systems focus for FY16 and FY17.

This funding opportunity includes three categories:
Category 1. Patterns of change, and their impacts, in the phenology and distribution of subsistence resources, harvested species, or other species of management interest.
Category 2: Identification and synthesis of information about 'hotspots' of change or of highly resilient 'stable' locations in western Alaska.
Category 3: An open category for other proposed projects related to 'Changes in terrestrial habitat characteristics and their impact on important resources or services in western Alaska'.

The Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is a self-directed partnership governed by a Steering Committee. The Steering Committee includes representatives from 14 State, Federal and Tribal organizations. It is one of 5 LCCs in Alaska and one of 22 in North America. Our mission is to promote coordination, dissemination and development of applied science to inform landscape level conservation, including terrestrial-marine linkages in the face of a changing climate and related stressors. Congress provides seed funding for our LCC through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
