The Climate Adaptation Plan (Plan) is the result of a 2-year process to characterize climate impacts and vulnerabilities to Sanctuary resources along the North-central California coast and ocean (figure 1: Study Area Map), and to develop management strategies to respond to and decrease those vulnerabilities, ultimately enhancing resource resilience to climate impacts. The Plan represents the culmination of a Sanctuary Advisory Council (Council) planning process that resulted in the development of 78 adaptation strategy recommendations for the region’s management agencies to take to enhance coastal habitat resilience (Appendix B). The Plan presents the final adaptation strategies from these recommendations that Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (Sanctuary) would like to pursue, including a few additional strategies proposed and finalized by staff.
