Adapting to a Changing Gulf Region: An Online Course

Opportunity Type: Other

In partnership with the Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) and the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is pleased to offer a new online course in climate adaptation for natural resource managers working in the United States Gulf Coast region. This interactive, web-based course is intended to equip conservation professionals with the necessary knowledge to carry out critical conservation work in a time of uncertainty and change. The course features nine sessions, each including an in-depth case study tied to a key adaptation concept and highlighting a different location along the five-state Gulf coast. This course is free of charge and applications for registration will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with preference given to applicants living and working in the Gulf Coast region states. While this course is open to all levels of career and experience, it is best suited for conservation professionals with at least a basic understanding climate change conservation. For example, participants should have a working knowledge of climate vulnerability and understand the differences between vulnerability, adaptation, and mitigation. Please feel free to reach out to the Course Coordinator, Lily Swanbrow Becker, at lily.becker@myfwc.com with any questions and review the course syllabus for additional information:
