Southeast land trusts came together during a workshop hosted by the NOAA Coastal Services Center and Land Trust Alliance to discuss climate adaptation challenges around land protection and communication and share resources and ideas to help with these challenges.
- Ecological Corridors Protect Wildlife Movement and Water Quality in Michigan
- Identifying Conservation Priorities for Sea Level Rise Adaptation in Coastal Maryland
Maryland incorporated climate change impacts, specifically sea level rise, into its conservation priorities. Learn about the state’s initial considerations as it worked through this process and the geospatial best practices it incorporated to identify wetland conservation priorities for climate adaptation.
- Using Geospatial Techniques to Plan for Climate Change Impacts on Coastal Habitats
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Nature Conservancy are using sea level rise modeling trends and the Habitat Priority Planner to identify freshwater wetlands in coastal South Carolina to protect for future wildlife management. View a recorded Digital Coast webinar that presents this project.
