Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for the North-central California Coast and Ocean

May 2015

From the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this vulnerability assessment is a science-based effort to identify how and why focal resources - including habitats, species, and ecosystem services - across the North-central California coast and ocean region are likely to be affected by future climate conditions.

Maine Wildlife Action Plan

September 2015

Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife prepared the state’s 2015 Wildlife Action Plan to protect Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) and to fulfil requirements established by the State Wildlife Grant program. This updated plan focuses on developing a list of 378 SGCN based on a number of factors, including vulnerability to  climate change and cultural significance to tribes in Maine. The 2015 plan builds off of an earlier version, published in 2005, which helped secure funding that has supported enhanced habitat management, research, monitoring, population management, and outreach programs throughout the state.

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.

Climate Change and Agriculture, Including Aquaculture and Fisheries, in New Jersey

January 2016

The Rutgers Climate Institute put together this fact sheet to provide a brief and accessible summary of the impacts of climate change on agriculture in New Jersey, which includes climate effects that will impact crops, livestock, aquaculture, and fisheries. It explores the primary climate change risks to agriculture and fisheries in the state, and provides short summaries on how these sectors can both adapt to climate risks and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Keeping North Carolina's Farms and Forests Vibrant and Resilient: An Adaptive Management Planning Strategy

June 2015

The North Carolina Agriculture and Forestry Adaptation Work Group (NC-Adapt) has found that climate change risks to North Carolina’s agriculture and forestry industries warrant expanded and accelerated adaptive management planning. In this report, NC-Adapt reviews summarized climate impacts for the sectors, and outlines an adaptive management plan to improve agriculture and forestry resiliency and economic viability.

Michigan State Wildlife Action Plan (2015-2025)

2015

Michigan’s Wildlife Action Plan identifies the species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) and their habitats in Michigan. A subset of SGCN were prioritized, and the report includes “mini-plans” for the habitats of these focal species - which include critical threats, conservation actions, and the vulnerability to climate change for each species. For 2015-2025, Michigan will focus conservation efforts on these priority SGCN and key habitats with the goals established in this plan.
