Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy

Our goal

A 10% or greater improvement in the health, function, and connectivity of Southeastern ecosystems by 2060

Near-term metrics

Progress toward achieving the goal

Read the Recent trends in Southeastern ecosystems report (coming soon), based on the most recent 3-6 years of available data from existing Southeast-wide monitoring programs

Intended uses for goal

Basis for goal numbers

The long-term goal is intended to be both ambitious and achievable. It is based on a synthesis of 12 regional and subregional ecosystem assessments covering the Southeast (e.g., Everglades Report Card, State of the South Atlantic, Chesapeake Bay Report Card, State of the Birds, etc.). The near-term goals identify minimum progress needed to stay on track with meeting the long-term goal.
