Climate Change and U.S. Wildlife

Climate Change and National Park Wildlife: A Survival Guide is a new report from the National Parks Conservation Association. The report focuses on narratives of potential climate change impact to iconic wildlife across the U.S. National Park system, from coral reefs in the Caribbean to Alaskan caribou. The report offers five management solutions to protect wildlife:

"We can safeguard the wildlife of America’s national parks from climate change if we take the following steps:
■ Stop contributing to climate change
■ Reduce and eliminate existing harms that make wildlife more vulnerable to climate change
■ Give wildlife freedom to roam
■ Adopt “climate smart” management practices
■ Empower national parks to lead by example"
