I. Abstract

We will collect information on organizations' approaches to landscape scale conservation; their capacities, priorities, strategies, and approaches to collaboration; what other organizations they have sought advice from, collaborated with, or would like to collaborate with; their organizational type, size, and location; and where in the U.S. Pacific Northwest region they operate. The survey results will provide information about where, how, and with whom organizations working on coastal ecosystem issues focus their efforts, and will be used to facilitate opportunities for improved coordination and collaboration to enhance the collective impact of organizations working to protect and restore the health of U.S. Pacific Northwest coastal watersheds, estuaries, and associated ecosystems, and the communities that value, use, and depend on these resources.
