The Partnership for Gulf Coast Land Conservation (PGCLC) is a new coalition of local, regional, state and national land conservation organizations devoted to advancing land and water conservation in the Gulf of Mexico region.
Our core mission is to work together across the five Gulf of Mexico states to increase the pace, quality and permanence of voluntary land and water conservation in the coastal region.
This partnership is modeled after successful land trust coalitions around the country that have worked together to protect millions of acres watersheds, wildlife corridors and important cultural resources. Private lands in the coastal region are among the region’s most ecologically productive.
The Gulf Partnership is pleased to announce the publication of A Land Conservation Vision for the Gulf of Mexico Region, a report depicting the shared land protection priorities of the nonprofit land conservation community in the Gulf region. This document will be used to communicate our conservation priorities with landowners, state agencies and federal officials during the oil spill restoration process.
