Description: State Wildlife Action Plans are the blueprint in each state for wildlife conservation aimed at preventing wildlife from becoming endangered, and thus will be especially important in an era of climate change. The Plans are mandated by Congress for revision in 2015. State wildlife agencies and their many partners (federal, state, NGO, etc.) are working now to update these plans. We showcase the work of several state wildlife agencies to integrate climate change into these Action Plans and share lessons learned. This information is valuable everyone engaged in conservation planning initiatives.
