Conservation / Restoration
The Nature Conservancy developed the Conservation Action Planning (CAP) tool in order to guide projects’ design, implementation, and evaluation. The Alaska chapter has developed a CAP for the Arctic marine region of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas.
The overall goal of this project is to develop a hypothesis of change of the ecosystems in San Quintín Bay, Baja California, due to climate change and propose strategies to protect biodiversity from these impacts. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is leading these efforts along with Terra Peninsular A.C. and the Autonomous University of Baja California (Universidad Autónoma de Baja California).
