This report looks at how state fish and wildlife agencies across the southeastern United States addressed climate change in their recently updated (2015) State Wildlife Action Plans. The report was produced as part of the Vital Futures project, a collaborative effort of the National Wildlife Federation, North Carolina State University, and University of South Carolina funded by the U.S. Geological Survey’s Southeastern Climate Adaptation Science Center. The report is designed to support the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS), a state-federal collaboration working to sustain thriving fish and wildlife populations and to improve quality of life for people across the southeastern United States and Caribbean.
