Third Thursday Web Forum: Southeastern Plants Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need

January 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

**Note: this web forum is co-hosted with the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center. It requires advance registration and will be hosted via Zoom rather than the usual Teams connection.**

"Southeastern Plants Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need" with Carrie Radcliffe, Emily Coffey, and Sarah Norris of the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

The Southeastern Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need (RSGCN) list is the first of its kind in the U.S. The Atlanta Botanical Garden (ABG) coordinated the creation of this list, on behalf of the Southeastern Plant Conservation Alliance (SE PCA), by working with experts across the region. Project partners include the NatureServe Network, Terwilliger Consulting, Inc., Flora of the Southeastern United States, and the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA) Wildlife Diversity Committee. The Southeastern Plants RSGCN list presents species of conservation concern with regional responsibility and opportunity for collaboration, identifies high level threats and needs, and sets actionable priorities for rare plants across political boundaries. 

This project is moving the dial forward for plant conservation at the regional and national levels by highlighting the critical role of plants in the face of our changing climate and integrating these activities with broader efforts to conserve wildlife. Identification of ecological systems will inform potential Conservation Opportunity Areas that can be addressed by State & Tribal Wildlife plans and Grants, as well as future iterations of the Southeastern animal RSGCN. These tools will promote more holistic conservation and set the stage for more inclusive and comprehensive and effective landscape
