Climate adaptation call to action
Mar 25, 2013
What's new? A National Fish and Wildlife Climate Adaptation Strategy allies closely with Conservation Northwest's regional work connecting habitat and wildlife addressing climate change.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service and partners released a National Fish and Wildlife Climate Adaptation Strategy with a call to action for protecting fish, wildlife, plants, and natural systems in the context of climate change.
The strategy reflects shared principles and science-based practices "for reducing the negative impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, plants, and the natural systems upon which they depend."
The national climate adaptation strategy closely allies with Conservation Northwest's regional work connecting wildlife habitat through our I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, Hwy 97 underpass, wildlife monitoring, forest restoration, and other programs.
“The final release of this strategy helps set a national framework for the actions we take to help critters and their habitats adapt to a changing climate,” said Conservation Northwest's Jen Watkins. “From restoring resilience to eastern Washington forests to creating safer passage for animals across busy highways, we are improving and connecting habitats today to ameliorate conditions for wildlife in the future.”
