Engagement involves reaching out to Service employees; local, national and international partners in the public and private sectors; key constituencies and stakeholders; and everyday citizens to join forces and seek solutions to the challenges to fish and wildlife conservation posed by climate change. By building knowledge and sharing information in a comprehensive and integrated way, the Service and its partners and stakeholders will increase our understanding of global climate change impacts on species and their habitats and use our combined expertise and creativity to help wildlife resources adapt in a climate-impacted world.

Service planned actions include:

  • In conjunction with conservation partners, developing useful and accessible information resources to help Americans fully appreciate the significant implications of climate change on species and their habitats, and to engage these constituencies in seeking solutions.
  • Inspiring key stakeholders and the broad public to join in a national effort to address accelerating climate change and ensure a natural resource legacy for future generations.
