Safeguarding wildlife from climate change web conference series

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Wildlife Federation have developed a series of web conferences to increase communication and transfer of technical information between conservation professionals regarding the increasing challenges from climate change. This program is being facilitated by the USFWS's National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) Applied Landscape Conservation Team.​

From heat waves, wildfires, and droughts to floods, snowstorms, and derechos, record-setting extreme weather events are becoming more commonplace. In 2012 alone, more than 40,000 hot temperature records have been set across the United States. Climate change is fueling these new extremes. This webinar will summarize the latest scientific understanding of how climate change is affecting weather extremes today, projections for extremes under future climate scenarios, and the implications for ecosystems and biodiversity. It will also explore how considering more intense extremes, in addition to shifting baseline conditions, affects how we assess vulnerability of ecosystems to climate change and approach natural resource management. Finally, increasing extremes will be one of the most apparent manifestations of climate change in the lives of many people. For conservation professionals, it provides an important opportunity for engaging diverse audiences about how climate is changing, the impacts on people and wildlife, and options for addressing these growing risks. The webinar will conclude with a discussion of communicating about climate-driven weather extremes.
