SEAFWA 2015 has ended
Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 SEAFWA Annual Meeting.

The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 2), track (i.e. Wildlife Technical Sessions), or session (i.e. Wildlife Session #1). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Changing Landscapes by Coalition), key term (i.e. striped bass), or presenter last name (i.e. Weaver). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Hilary Morris, Louise Vaughn –South Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative

The South Atlantic LCC is a partnership of federal, state, and local organizations committed to sustaining the region’s natural and cultural resources for current and future generations. The Conservation Blueprint is a living spatial plan for the conservation actions needed to accomplish that goal—a shared vision of the future of the South Atlantic. Data-driven Blueprint Version 2.0, released in June, uses indicators to identify priority conservation areas by measuring the integrity of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. It considers future change by explicitly modeling the threats of sea level rise and urbanization. Currently, more than 400 individuals from over 100 organizations have actively participated in the development of the Blueprint. The Conservation Blueprint can be accessed via two online platforms: the Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) and the Simple Viewer. The CPA is a science-based mapping platform that allows users to access publicly available spatial data, perform basic analyses, and create maps. The Simple Viewer is an intuitive custom interface for exploring the Blueprint, the indicators used to develop the Blueprint, and a small suite of ancillary data sets summarized at a sub-watershed level. The South Atlantic LCC developed and refined these online Blueprint viewers through in-depth interviews with Blueprint users and paper prototyping techniques borrowed from the software development field. This multidisciplinary approach has increased stakeholder engagement and awareness—a vital step in collaborative conservation—and improved the accessibility of the Blueprint. Today, conservation practitioners are already implementing the Blueprint to inform action and investment across the geography.
