Center for Large Landscape Conservation
CLLC promotes natural resiliency by answering to large landscape conservation’s biggest challenges.
The Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC) is the hub of a growing global movement to reverse the fragmentation of the earth’s landscapes and restore nature’s resilience to climate change. CLLC develops science, crafts policy, and supports planning for use by more than 2,000 community-based conservation efforts. Together with its partners, it forms a world-wide network of conservation professionals, scientists, and decision makers. Through its Corridors & Crossings approach, CLLC supports critical animal movement that shapes and maintains the landscapes in which they live. It uses science to help planners identify how and where animals move across a landscape—and how people impact that movement. Its knowledge is used to support on-the-ground action, from helping wildlife safely cross roads to identifying and protecting vital lands.
About Our Grants
In late 2019, the Woodcock Foundation awarded CLLC a one-year $70,000 grant to support its collective work on the IUCN’s Connectivity Conservation Specialist Group (CCSG), the Transport Working Group, and Green Crossings International (GCI). Part of the grant will support the GCI in Latin America. In early 2020, Woodcock provided $81,500 to support leadership and coordination of the ARC Initiative, an interdisciplinary partnership working to facilitate new thinking, new methods, new materials, and new solutions for wildlife crossing structures. In fall of 2020, Woodcock awarded CLLC a one-year $15,000 grant to support the online publication of the IUCN Guidelines for Connectivity Conservation Impacted by Linear Transportation Infrastructure and the distribution of hard copies.
