Alaska Wildlife Action Plan

December 2016

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game developed Alaska’s Wildlife Action Plan to provide a common strategic framework for wildlife management, updated species data, and tools to support the conservation of the state’s aquatic and terrestrial wildlife. The original 2006 plan was updated in 2015, approved in 2016, and has been revised to focus on strategic approaches that will guide priorities and projects over the next 10 years. The purpose of the plan is to identify species of greatest conservation need in Alaska, describe their distribution and habitat use, and the key threats to these species.

Minnesota Sentinel Lakes Program

The Section of Fisheries of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is leading a statewide collaborative effort to develop a system to monitor and record biological and chemical changes that occur in a sample of lakes that are representative of the state’s most common lakes. The program is designed to understand and predict the consequences of land use and climate change on lake habitats. This research builds off of the Sustaining Lakes in a Changing Environment program, or SLICE, that began in 2008.

California State Wildlife Action Plan 2015 Update

February 2016

California’s 2015 State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP 2015) is a comprehensive, statewide plan for conserving the state’s fish and wildlife and their natural habitats. The Plan identifies and prioritizes at-risk species and habitats across the state, and provides conservation strategies to help protect and conserve these species. The first update of California’s 2005 SWAP integrates climate change impacts and adaptation planning. The updated SWAP analyzes the impacts of climate change on ecosystems, uses climate change vulnerability as a criterion for the most vulnerable target species, and offers conservation strategies that address impacts of climate change.

Colorado State Wildlife Action Plan: A Strategy for Conserving Wildlife in Colorado

2015

Colorado’s State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) summarizes the most crucial aspects of biodiversity conservation in Colorado over the next 10 years. The plan aims to address the impacts to, and develop near and long-term strategies for, the state’s Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) - which are the species of highest conservation priority in Colorado. This SWAP was coordinated by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) - who have chosen 55 of the SGCN to focus their efforts on, considering these species as “Tier 1” or as being in the most critical condition in terms of severity of threats and population decline.

California Executive Order N-82-20 Addressing the Biodiversity Crisis

October 7, 2020

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an Executive Order on October 7, 2020 creating a California Biodiversity Collaborative and setting a goal of conserving at least 30% of the state’s land and coastal waters by 2030 to combat the biodiversity and climate crises. The EO also calls for engaging with stakeholders across California to, among other things: prioritize investments to protect biodiversity, habitat restoration, wildfire resistant and sustainable landscapes; protect pollinators, native plants and animals, and soils; naturally sequester carbon; and develop a “Natural and Working Lands Climate Smart Strategy.

Embracing Change: Adapting Conservation Practices to Address a Changing Climate

March 2018

The "hopeful side of climate change," as presented by the Wildlife Conservation Society, can be found in this portfolio of conservation practices that support wildlife and ecosystem adaptation to climate impacts. Twelve case studies feature organizations and their climate-informed strategies and innovative long-term goals that are ready to evolve with the impacts of climate change. The case studies included reflect projects that were were supported by the Wildlife Conservation Society Climate Adaptation Fund.
