Description: Two important tools for Ecological Planning are priority resources and conservation targets. Priority resources are the set of biological, ecological, and cultural features and ecological processes collaboratively identified as most important. Conservation targets are the measurable expressions of desired conditions for a priority resource. In other words, the health of each priority resource is measured through conservation targets. Also known as biological indicators, conservation targets provide a focus for planning, design, conservation action, and monitoring trends. Good conservation targets guide landscape-scale conservation, are informative, responsive to management, and have monitoring data available. Ideally, our goal was to represent each priority resource with three to five conservation targets, with one to three measurable metrics per target.Priority resources can be viewed as conservation target categories for important natural or cultural resources. They are identified collaboratively and should represent the most significant resources for the focus geography. They should also reflect the mission, vision, common interests, and values of our partners. Based on information and recommendations gathered from partners, priority resources for “marine” and “estuarine” were identified. Together, these two resources are meant to represent all habitats, ecosystems, and biological resources in these environments.Defining conservation targets for these two broad systems provided challenges. Florida exists in both the subtropical and tropical zones. On the west it is bordered by both the Gulf of Mexico and an extensive continental shelf. On the east it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf Stream, and a shelf that extends only mere miles out to sea. While there is some consistency among regions, state-wide it is difficult to describe estuarine and marine waters succinctly.Therefore, these two priority resources were further divided into sub-priority resources in order to best represent the variety of habitats within the waters surrounding Florida. Defining habitat types allowed us to develop conservation targets that better represent these priority resources overall. Initially, the sub-priority resources were defined as salt marsh, seagrass, mangrove, and coral/hardbottom. This data represents the extent of the four main sub-priority resources identified by Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (saltmarsh, mangrove, seagrass, coral/hardbottom).

Copyright Text: Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative The Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative (PFLCC) is part of a national network of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives(LCCs). LCCs are applied conservation science partnerships among federal agencies, regional organizations, states, tribes, NGOs, private stakeholders, universities and other entities within a geographic area. They are designed to inform resource management decisions in an integrated fashion across landscapes at a broader scale than any individual partner’s responsibility.
