Puerto Rico’s Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi spoke about the Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative this morning during a U.S. House Natural Resources Committee Oversight Hearing on the Department of the Interior’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget. You can read his testimony here. You can see the YouTube video here.

He states at the beginning of his testimony, “First, the Department of the Interior is supporting ecosystem-based resource management decisions in Puerto Rico in an integrated fashion with the local community through a landscape conservation cooperative or LCC approach that your predecessor, Secretary Salazar, launched nationally in 2010. The Caribbean LCC, the most recent one formed, is bringing the best available science to bear to preserve habitat, and to respond to climate change effects on land, water, ocean, fish and wildlife, and cultural heritage resources in Puerto Rico. This approach is facilitating a great synergy of all the resource agencies and non-federal partners, and I urge the Department to continue budgeting resources for the national network of LCCs.”
