Technical report summarizing work with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to incorporate climate change into the State Wildlife Action Plan. Defenders' worked with the FWC to evaluate the application of a particular vulnerability assessment tool, the NatureServe Climate Change Vulnerability Index, to help inform management priorities and the design of appropriate climate change adaptation strategies for targeted species. This report illustrates a process for incorporating vulnerability assessments with conceptual modeling as part of a comprehensive planning framework to identify adaptation strategies and management opportunities for species likely to be vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Assessing Species and Area Vulnerability to Climate Change for the Oregon Conservation Strategy: Willamette Valley Ecoregion »
Defenders worked with graduate students at the University of California at Davis to conduct a vulnerability assessment on 46 species within the Willamette Valley Ecoregion of Oregon. This report also provides an initial guideline for future place-based climate change vulnerability analyses.
This report details current legislative attacks on America’s imperiled plants and animals and assesses how each one would eviscerate wildlife conservation efforts.
Living Lands facilitated workshops at the most recent Southeastern Regional, Virginia, and Maryland land trust conferences to help the land trust community and their partners define their own vision for helping their communities adapt in the face of climate change. The goal of this facilitated workshop was to demonstrate a quick and inexpensive process by which land trusts can begin to envision how climate change adaptation is part of their land conservation mission, understand the effects of climate change on conservation values, and develop adaptation strategies.
This report summarizes the results of a systematic assessment of climate change vulnerability of the mammals of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Extensive description of the CCVI methodology used to assess the vulnerability of Arctic Refuge mammals.
Defenders of Wildlife analyzed the most recent CCP from each FWS region to assess how comprehensively they are taking climate change into consideration. This document highlights the results of this June 2011 analysis.
This spreadsheet summarizes many of the provisions in the House Interior Appropriations Bill that will have negative impacts on wildlife and the environment. We strongly urge Congress to oppose these provisions and any subsequent riders that undermine America's commitment to protecting wildlife, our public lands, and the natural resources we all depend on.
Cuts to climate change adaptation and national wildlife refuge programs. Leaving waterways vulnerable to the interests of corporate polluters. Elimination of critical protections for wolves. These are just a few of the ways the House Republicans' current budget proposal will harm America's wildlife and wild places.
