Following through on recommendations from a 2008 climate change summit, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) worked with partners to conduct limited vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning for a subset of species. Those efforts provided the foundational science-based information for the revised State Wildlife Action Plan (2010).
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) was established July 1, 1999 through an amendment approved in the 1998 general election, which combined all the staff and Commissioners of the former Marine Fisheries Commission, elements of the Divisions of Marine Resources and Law Enforcement of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and all of the employees and Commissioners of the former Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission. The FWC focuses on habitat management for the protection of wildlife species.
Since 1984, CEA has worked at the nexus of markets, policy, and science to address environmental challenges in California, the United States, and around the world.
We have extensive experience with the California regulatory process and political landscape, coupled with an intricate knowledge of key environmental issues, including climate change, energy policy, marine conservation, sustainable agriculture, forest management, goods movement, air quality, toxic chemicals, and land-use planning.
Climate Change Adaptation in Protected Areas in Mexico for the Conservation of Biodiversity, Ecosystems, and Ecosystem Services is a collaborative program of The Nature Conservancy intended to protect biodiversity and ecosystems from climate change impacts. The program looks at adaptation, resilience, and connectivity in protected areas. A pilot program on climate adaptation in Southeast Mexico’s protected areas began in July 2010.
The Nature Conservancy has been actively working in Mexico since 1988. The Nature Conservancy helps conservation of ecosystems by working with communities, assisting in the development of management plans for protected areas, controlling the spread of invasive species, and managing for uncontrolled fires.
