Climate Change Action Plan for the Florida Reef System 2010 - 2015

June 2010

A product of The Nature Conservancy's Florida Reef Resilience Program (FRRP), this action plan was developed by reef managers, scientists and reef users from across South Florida as a guide for better coordination of reef management across local, state, and federal jurisdictions. It serves as a more detailed, Florida-specific companion to the climate change goals and objectives in the report “NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program Goals & Objectives 2010-2015” (NOAA CRCP 2009).

Climate Change and Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife Reports

April 2010

In April 2010, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) and Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences published a series of three reports that address the impact of climate change on ecosystems and species. Funded by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Doris Duke Foundation, the objective was to make "climate-smart" the State's existing State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). The SWAP provides a roadmap for the conservation of wildlife and habitat in the state, including 22 critical habitat types and 257 priority animals in need of conservation action.

A Summary of the Alaskan Marine Arctic Conservation Action Plan

April 2010

The Alaska chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has developed a Conservation Action Plan (CAP) using TNC's CAP methodology.   The plan covers coastal, nearshore, and marine environments of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas - including pelagic and benthic habitats, the continental shelf and ocean basins, lagoons and marshes, islands, and the shoreline - within the Exclusive Economic Zone of Alaska. Climate change and its effects are identified as the primary threats to natural resources of ecological and cultural importance in the region.
