Abstract

The latest release in the video series examining the effects of climate change in the American West focuses on Colorado. Considering likely future habitat changes, the video considers threats posed to some of the state’s most iconic wildlife, including cutthroat trout, elk, deer, ptarmigan and sage grouse. Without action, many traditional hunting and fishing pursuits in the Golden State are at risk, but the video outlines measures that can help Colorado’s fish and wildlife adapt to a changing climate.

Abstract

Arizona's State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP), previously known as the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy (CWCS), was accepted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Acceptance Advisory Team in 2006.

Abstract

Alaska's Wildlife Action Plan provides a strategic framework and set of management tools that enables implementation of a long-term holistic conservation approach for all aquatic and terrestrial species. The Plan identifies wildlife conservation priorities, valuable resources for biological information, and guidance for use of conservation funds.The Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G) serves as the main coordinator of Alaska’s Wildlife Action Plan.

Organization Overview: 

Climate change impacts pose challenges to drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater (water sector) utilities in fulfilling their public health and environmental missions. Extreme weather events, sea level rise, shifting precipitation and runoff patterns, temperature changes, and resulting changes in water quality and availability contribute to a complex scenario of climate change challenges that have potentially significant implications for the sustainability of the water sector.

Abstract

In 2003, EPA issued Region 10 guidance for Pacific Northwest state and tribal temperature water quality standards. This document was the culmination of a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary effort to develop a temperature standard for the protection of salmon, steelhead, bull trout, and redband and Lahontan cutthroat trout (collectively termed coldwater salmonids). Since its release, Oregon and Washington have adopted the temperature standard for their waters designated for protection of coldwater salmonids.
