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.

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.

Climate Change Adaptation Report: Georgetown, Maine

May 2015

This report summarizes the findings of the Georgetown Conservation Commission’s assessment of climate risks for the island community of Georgetown, Maine. It aims to make meaningful climate action seem possible for residents by including some preliminary recommendations in this assessment. The report is organized around a framework that outlines common interests and climate factors that impact those interests. Each chapter focuses on one of the interest areas, frames the problem through the local context, and identifies specific vulnerabilities.

Iowa Wildlife Action Plan - Securing a Future for Fish and Wildlife: A Conservation Legacy for Iowans

2015

First approved in 2006, the Iowa Wildlife Action Plan is a 25-year strategy for conservation of all wildlife in Iowa. The 2015 Update provides a comprehensive review and revision to the plan that incorporates the threat of climate change to wildlife and habitat. Appendix 21 is a summary of a climate change vulnerability assessment for Iowa wildlife, that predicted climate vulnerability for over 300 species in the state.

NOAA Fisheries Climate Science Strategy

August 28, 2015

NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service Strategy is designed to help regional fishery managers respond to climate change's effect on marine resources. The report identifies key objectives to increase production, delivery, and use of climate-related information to support the management of fish stocks, fisheries, and protected species. The Strategy outlines a clear path for NOAA Fisheries and partners to deliver the science enterprise, information and tools needed for climate-ready decision-making.

NRDC Ocean Acidification Hotspots Map

September 2015

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has developed an online interactive map of ocean acidification implications on coastal communities. The mapping approach determines where the ocean chemistry is changing most rapidly, where vulnerable species are located, and where people who most depend on these species reside. The intersection of these factors reveals an elevated risk from ocean acidification.
