A Vivid CAnVAS: Visualizing Climate Projections for Status Species Assessments

Event Type: Online

Among the challenges facing native plant and animal species across the Southeast, climate change is pushing many beyond the environmental conditions to which they’re adapted. To help inform US Fish & Wildlife Service scientists assessing such changes and threats, the North Carolina State Climate Office has developed a new web-based visualization tool to show projections of weather and climate parameters with known connections to endangered species. 

This presentation will cover the development of the CAnVAS tool and its applications for biologists investigating climate impacts on environmentally sensitive species.
