Trust for Public Land: Using climate science to strategically guide habitat conservation. from WCS Climate Adaptation Fund on Vimeo.
"Global warming is changing fire behavior, creating longer fire seasons, and causing more frequent, large-scale high-severity wildfires."
This also got me thinking about the wildfires in Washington this past summer, and about the numerous effects of climate change on forests in the Pacific Northwest, which led me to something really interesting--Did you know the US Forest Service has a really great website chock-full of information about climate change? Of particular interest to me is the "Pacific Northwest Research Station," and also the "Climate Change Resource Center," which is where I found the video that I posted above. What I like about this video is that it brings up some intriguing perspectives by focusing on planning for resilience, understanding connectivity, and integrating climate science into the conservation work that is taking place. Pretty cool stuff!
