New Mexico Climate Change Adaptation and Ecology Program - the Nature Conservancy

New Mexico was the first chapter of the Nature Conservancy to address ecological climate change adaptation by creating the Climate Change Ecology and Adaptation Program. This program provides land and water managers with information about climate change in New Mexico's past, present and future. The program focuses on assessing the impacts of climate change on the state's biodiversity and identifying local level adaptation strategies that can help build ecological resilience.




New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium

The New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium (NJSGC) serves the state and the region by developing programs designed to resolve coastal issues, develop marine technology, formulate science-based policy, and improve science literacy among its citizens.   Member Institutions of the NJSGC are colleges, universities and other groups with expertise in marine, coastal and/or estuarine science and an interest in New Jersey’s marine, coastal and/or estuarine affairs. Collectively the group works to advance knowledge and wise-utilization of New Jersey’s marine and coastal resources and make a positive impact on marine and coastal policy throughout the region.




New Hampshire Sea Grant
