In 2009, Congress asked that the Department of the Interior develop a nationwide “climate change strategy.” The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was subsequently tasked with developing a strategy to ensure the sustainability of fish, wildlife, plants and habitats in the face of accelerating climate change.
The USFW released the plan today, which it calls a “cornerstone” of its strategic plan. It can be found here. It’s a little dense and we’re still parsing through it, but take a look at the video and the link.
“The strategy is more than a collaborative document, ” UFWS deputy director Rowan Gould says in the video introduction. ” It’s a call to action.”
