ABSTRACT: In 2015, a pilot project was initiated by the United States Air Force to identify a regional natural resources management approach to help minimize threats to military missions and identify partner-leveraged conservation opportunities throughout the State of Florida. The regional plan was developed and implemented through the Landscape Conservation Cooperative Framework and its existing biological planning and partners and covers land on and surrounding eight installations throughout Florida. The plan aims to be a proactive approach for Air Force, identifying conservation priorities that support military mission, focusing on opportunities beyond the installation fence lines, and looking at opportunities to work with partners to ensure that Air Force lands are not species islands, and instead, a functional and vital piece of the greater conservation picture in the State of Florida. Year one of the plan is complete and year two is focused on refinement of priority species models and implementation in partnership to benefit conservation for at risk, listed and state imperiled species.
