The National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy is a
comprehensive, multi-partner response to the threat of climate change in the
United States. It is a call to action— a framework for effective steps that
can be taken, or at least initiated, over the next five to 10 years based on
climate change projections for the next century. It is designed to be a key
part of the nation’s larger response to a changing climate, and to guide
responsible actions by natural resource managers and other decision-makers
at all levels of government. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the New York
Division of Fish, Wildlife, & Marine Resources (representing state fish and
wildlife agencies more broadly) co-led development of the Strategy. The
Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies also provided support for the
effort.  The Strategy is available on the website:

There will be a special session this week at the North American on Thursday,
March 28th from 1-2pm.
