Integrating climate change into state wildlife action plans: an update
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 5:00:00 PM UTC - 7:30:00 PM UTC
Climate change has emerged as a significant threat to fish and wildlife across the United States. As such, over the past few years, state fish and wildlife agencies have been actively working to integrate climate change into their revised State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAP). This webinar will highlight general ways in which states have addressed climate change in their respective plans, as indicated through a recent survey conducted by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA). The program will also highlight the approach applied by Tennessee, which engaged state fish and wildlife experts and both governmental and NGO partners to assess the vulnerability of species and habitats in the state and identify potential management options. The webinar will allow for opportunities for participants to share their own experiences with addressing climate change in relevant fish and wildlife management and identify next steps to ensure that the creative and innovative ideas developed by states will be implemented.
Space is limited. Please register through the button at the top of this announcement. If you are unable to attend the webinar, a recording will be available on the National Conservation Training Center's webinar gallery shortly after the webinar.
