Ohio wildlife and climate change conference

To effectively manage Ohio?s wildlife and habitats, the reality of current and future climate change must be integrated into the work of conservation. The US Midwest, and Great Lakes region in particular, is currently experiencing warmer air and water temperatures, decreased lake ice, longer periods of lake stratification, changes to wildlife migration patterns, more variable water levels, decreases in soil quality, longer growing seasons, and more extreme precipitation events. These impacts combine with, exacerbate, and are exacerbated by existing stresses on natural systems. This conference will provide foundational information to help conservation professionals address climate change impacts on habitat and wildlife in plans and management strategies.

Sponsored by Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Division of Wildlife, The Nature Conservancy, The Wilds, The Ohio State University, Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve, Ohio Coastal Training Program, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Ohio Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
