Thursday, February 14, 2019. 10:30AM. Webinar: Case Studies in Climate Adaptation in Marine Protected Areas. Sara Hutto, NOAA Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Susan Guiteras, US Fish and Wildlife Service. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
Climate impacts are already being felt at coastal and marine protected areas, and some managers are moving beyond conducting vulnerability assessment to implementing climate adaptation actions to address climate stressors. These actions range from relatively small-scale efforts (e.g., restoring native oysters that protect shorelines) to major restoration and adaptation projects (e.g., returning tidal flow in wetlands and restoring natural barrier island geomorphology to increase resiliency to storm events). Speakers will present case studies from the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.
