Overall

Our estimates of current resiliency, representation, and redundancy for PCC are moderate to high (Table 3.9). However, while PCC faces a variety of threats, only one threat was considered an important factor in our assessment of the current and future viability of the PCC. Based on our future scenarios for urban development, we predict major losses of resiliency, representation, and redundancy for PCC in the future. Especially problematic is the complete loss of resilience and redundancy from the western group, which reduces half of the representation of PCC. These combined losses under even the status quo scenario make the ability of PCC to sustain its populations into the 50 year time horizon questionable assuming current levels of protection and management.
