Objective 3: By 2017, address comprehensive adaptation planning and incorporate these strategies into the action plan in response to the threat of climate change to SGCN and their habitats.

Description: Building off the climate change chapter in the 2011 revision, the State Wildlife Action Plan will integrate adaptation planning into a broader suite of habitats and species for the 2015 revision. Results from the 2011 vulnerability assessment will serve as template for identifying threats to species from climate change and the adaptation recommendations will be applied through the development of several pilot "on the ground" adaptation projects as part of this objective.
