Abstract

Wildlife need a network of conserved lands to help them adapt to climate change. According to the National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy, one the most important things we can do to help fish, wildlife and plants adapt to changing climate is to conserve the range of habitats they depend on. This document describes how Working Forest Conservation Easements can aid wildlife in the context of climate change.
