Wildlife in a Warming World: Confronting the Climate Crisis

January 30, 2013

From the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Wildlife in a Warming World examines case studies from across the country illustrating how climate change is altering wildlife habitats and contributing to population declines. Recommendations are made to protect both wildlife and communities in various ecosystems from the impacts of climate change, such as extreme weather, sea level rise and wildfires.

U.S. DOI Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program

2013

The U.S. Department of the Interior's Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program is supporting projects that reduce communities’ vulnerability to the growing risks from coastal storms, sea level rise, flooding, erosion and associated threats through strengthening natural ecosystems that also benefit fish and wildlife. The program is funded by the 2013 Hurricane Disaster Relief Appropriations Act.

Nevada Wildlife Action Plan

March 1, 2013

Developed by the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), Nevada’s State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) revision was published in 2013. The revision was completed to incorporate the potential impacts of emerging and expanding stressors - including climate change - on the state’s fish and wildlife species, and habitats in greatest need of conservation.

Best Practices for State Wildlife Action Plans - Voluntary Guidance to States for Revision and Implementation

November 2012

In 2005, Congress mandated that state fish and wildlife agencies develop State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs) that identified the species and habitats in greatest conservation need, key threats, and recommended actions - in order to receive federal funding through the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants Program. The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies prepared a report with guidance focused on integrating climate change adaptation planning into SWAPs in 2009 - Voluntary Guidance for States to Incorporate Climate Change into State Wildlife Action Plans and Other Management Plans.

National Park Service Climate Change Action Plan 2012 - 2014

November 2012

The National Park Service (NPS) Climate Change Action Plan provides guidance to help park managers and staff electively plan for and respond to current and future climate change effects on national park lands. Following on the Climate Change Response Strategy, released in 2010, the Action Plan articulates a set of high priority no-regrets actions the NPS is undertaking, or was committed to undertake, by 2014.

Estimating and Forecasting Ecosystem Services within Pine Island Sound, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, North Captiva Island, Cayo Costa Island, Useppa Island, Other Islands of the Sound, and the Nearshore Gulf of Mexico

2013

This study identified the range and quantity of ecosystem services within the Pine Island Sound region. Pine Island Sound is located in Lee County, Florida, lying between Pine Island and the barrier islands of Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, North Captiva Island and Cayo Costa, which separate the Sound from the Gulf of Mexico.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Key Habitats in New York: A Foundation for Climate Adaptation Planning

2013

This report includes an evaluation of the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, and habitats of New York, and an overview of adaptation strategies. Developed by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), the information produced through this project and included in this document will broadly inform the incorporation of climate change considerations into the revision of New York’s Wildlife Action Plan (WAP) which is slated for completion in 2015.

Virginia's Climate Modeling and Species Vulnerability Assessment: How Climate Data Can Inform Management and Conservation

2013

This project developed models of select fish, wildlife and tree species distributions in Virginia under multiple climate change scenarios, and produced a species vulnerability assessment for the state. The assessment is intended to help decision makers better understand how climate change will likely affect sensitive species and habitats in Virginia. The project was funded by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) through a State Wildlife Grant, and by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and was supported by research from the Conservation Management Institute at Virginia Tech.

Climate Change Adaptation Plan for Coastal and Inland Wetlands in the State of Michigan

September 2012

The Association of State Wetland Managers developed this white paper on climate change projections and adaptation recommendations for Michigan wetlands for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The report describes the natural capital offered by wetlands through ecological services, details the climate change impacts on these services, and offers strategies to use wetlands as tools for climate mitigation and adaptation.

Ecosystem Assessment and Reporting Tool

August 9, 2012

The Ecosystem Assessment and Reporting (EAR) Tool provides standard ecoregional status measures in a GIS-based tool to integrate data across the Inter-American Biodiversity Information Network Thematic Networks (TN). This tool seeks to maximize the information available in the Inter-American Biodiversity Information Network Ecosystems and Protected Areas TNs, by providing conservation decision makers products for assessing the extent of ecosystems under effective conservation, offering direction on where to work and what actions may be needed to improve biodiversity conservation.
