The Partnership for Gulf Coast Land Conservation, a program of the Land Trust Alliance, announced today the release of “A Land Conservation Vision for the Gulf of Mexico Region.” This landmark report unites multiple partners to identify priority focus areas for land conservation and economic revival in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf Partnership is committed to Strategic Conservation, the identification of the most important areas in a region for conservation, restoration and long-term management. This approach is in contrast to a scatter-shot approach – what some have called ‘random acts of conservation.’ They want every dollar spent on conservation to be used to create the most benefit. The land conservation vision contains a series of maps that identify high-value geographic areas for land conservation. These maps include four focus areas identified by the partners that reflect local community values. These are wetlands, migratory bird habitat, scenic rivers, and longleaf pine habitat.
