Climate Change and the Endangered Species Act: Are US Agencies Protecting Our Most Endangered Animals from Climate Change?

Climate Change and the Endangered Species Act: Are US Agencies Protecting Our Most Endangered Animals from Climate Change?

Abstract

This talk will discuss the role and gaps of policy and management in conserving endangered species under climate change. I’ll share results from a recent study that identifies shortfalls in management agency attention on endangered animals listed under the US Endangered Species Act, and offer thoughts on directions forward to better protect our imperiled species. Through examples, I’ll highlight the important role that science plays in policy, and how scientist advocacy can provide a crucial, objective perspective that amplifies issues and supports decision-makers’ prioritization.
