Improving conservation actions for species threatened by climate change
Back in 2016, we partnered with the Climate Change Specialist Group (CCSG) of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
‘s Species Survival Comission (SSC). Whew! Will you remember all those acronyms? Basically, this is a group of twenty leading scientists from all around the world who are working super hard to find ways to protect species that are impacted by climate change.
We helped to fund the production of the “Guidelines For Assessing Species’ Vulnerability To Climate Change”. This report for conservation professionals outlined the methodology for monitoring species so that we can get consistent data to give us the whole picture of just how badly wildlife is being affected by changing weather patterns. The example studies in the report are pretty hard-hitting. It shows that biodiversity all over the world is at risk as habitats are lost, and many animals could become extinct if things do not change.
