National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy

The Association is partnering with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to create a National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy.

This science-based Strategy will provide architectural blueprints for states, federal agencies and tribes to use in developing their own adaptation for reducing climate change impacts on fish, wildlife and their associated habitats. 

The strategy was released on March 26, 2013.

In partnership with state agencies and federal partners, the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies released a progress report in September 2014, entitled “Taking Action,” which features 50 examples of ongoing and completed conservation projects to demonstrate the tangible steps that federal, state and tribal natural resource agencies are taking to safeguard fish, wildlife and plants in a changing climate.
