The National Wildlife Federation in cooperation with New York's Division of Fish, Wildlife, and Marine Resources (DFWMR) conducted a statewide habitat vulnerability assessment in an effort to evaluate the vulnerability of New York's Primary Habitats. The assessment focused on upland systems that together cover 65 to 70 percent of the total land area in New York. Marine Systems were not included in the analysis due to limitations in the scope of the methodology. The goal is that the information developed through this project and included in this document will broadly inform the incorporation of climate change considerations into the revision of New York's Wildlife Action Plan.
