Safeguarding Wildlife Webinar Series 11:00am-12:30pm Mountain Time There is strong interest in on-the-ground climate adaptation conservation, but very little practical guidance is available and even fewer examples of case studies exist that demonstrate and describe this work. The Wildlife Conservation Society, with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, directs the Climate Adaptation Fund, supporting on-the-ground projects that demonstrate effective interventions for wildlife adaptation to climate change. This webinar will provide an overview of this grant program, including a review of the application process and goals of the program, while also exploring examples of climate adaptation work currently underway. Presentations include:

  • The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Adaptation grants program - Darren Long, Wildlife Conservation Society
  • Intentionality and associated Climate Smart Principles - Bruce Stein, National Wildlife Federation
  • Adaptation Options for Managing Century Bog - Hector Galbraith, Manomet Center for Conservation Science
  • Managing Coastal Wetland Impoundments in an Era of Climate Change - Karen Bennett and Rob Hossler, Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife
