The Pierce County Biodiversity Alliance (PCBA) is comprised of a unique group of stakeholders, representing governmental, academic and non-profit agencies, whose mission is to preserve the long-term biodiversity of Pierce County. The main emphasis of the PCBA is non-regulatory in nature and instead focuses on public outreach to property owners within this network, providing education on how to maintain the habitats and biological diversity. The PCBA goal is to provide detailed information on habitat quality and species presence/viability, restoration opportunities, and priorities for conservation and land acquisition for each BMA.
