Wild world. Dinosaurs still among us. Thank you usfws for reminders of climate change & animals we share this land with. While I admire aspects of their work, their response to climate change seems so inadequate…

Currently, our best course of action is to reduce existing stressors − which we do every day. These include managing against invasive species, growing and connecting habitat blocks, purchasing conservation easements, and working with private landowners through our various Farm Bill and Partners for Fish and Wildlife programs. We also make sure our protected areas have diverse habitat types so that species like the American bittern and northern pintail have at least one place to live at any time. 


Yes, we as land stewards can support more resilient ecosystems and wildlife communities. These seem like great ways to start doing that. But how could that be enough? What would an organization look like that more fully responded to climate change? Friends, what do we do?
