NPLCC Conservation Planning Atlas Showcases Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project Final Products

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

A 2012 project led by Conservation Northwest and University of Washington has been progressing over the past years to identify potential climate impacts on wildlife habitat connectivity in the transboundary region of Washington and British Columbia.

This multi-partner initiative (including collaboration with National Park Service , Wilburforce Foundation , Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife , Great Northern LCC , BC Ministry of Environment , BC Parks , BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations) has released a set of final products including key findings, data sets, and reports.

We are pleased to share the availability of these products on the NPLCC Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) - our online hub to discover, visualize and analyze landscape-scale data, hosted by Databasin.

On the CPA you can find for the project:

  • A project overview report, which describes the project’s rationale, partnerships, approach, and key findings.
  • Additional reports describing key findings for 13 case studies (including 11 species, a vegetation system, and a region). These reports are provided as appendices to the overview report, and are intended to act as stand-alone resources. They include summary descriptions of the project and assessment process; key climate impacts and adaptation actions for each case study; and all materials used to identify potential climate impacts and adaptation actions for each case study (e.g., habitat connectivity models and projected future changes in species distributions, vegetation communities, and climate variables).
  • An interactive project gallery. This project gallery includes all project reports and assessment materials, including interactive and downloadable habitat connectivity and climate datasets.
