Climate change is resulting in more wildfires and extreme weather, contributing to wildlife diseases, forest health issues, and the spread of invasive species, affecting wildlife populations and altering habitats.
- Assess the potential implications of climate change for wildlife and their habitats.
- Proactively manage hazards (e.g. wildfire) associated with climate change by using prevention, preparedness, mitigation and recovery measures.
- Increase wildlife and ecosystem resiliency and adaptation to changing climate by applying forward-looking strategies.
- Enhance research, monitoring and management of climate change effects on wildlife health, ecosystem and forest health, and invasive species.
- Increase awareness and research about wildlife health issues such as Chronic Wasting Disease in deer.
- What are the most effective ways to proactively adapt to the impacts of climate change to wildlife and habitats?
