National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy released

In partnership with State and Tribal agencies, the Obama Administration today released the Nation’s first strategy to help public and private decision makers address the impacts that climate change is having on natural resources and the people and economies that depend on them. The National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy provides a unified approach—reflecting shared principles and science-based practices—for reducing the negative impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, plants, and the natural systems upon which they depend.

Fish, wildlife, and plants provide jobs, food, clean water, storm protection, health benefits and many other important ecosystem services that support people, communities and economies across the nation. Action is needed now to help safeguard these valuable natural resources and the communities that depend on them in a changing climate.
