San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge Climate Adaptation Plan

Metadata Updated: January 11, 2017

Future climate change is expected to cause dramatic changes in the physical and biological environment of the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge). To effectively plan for an uncertain future, managers and decision makers must consider a range of future scenarios using tools and decision support frameworks that can incorporate uncertainty. Successful strategies will be those that are robust to uncertainty and are likely to provide benefits across a range of scenarios. Uncertain future conditions may also require managers to re-assess traditional conservation goals as they may no longer be feasible under novel conditions.

The purpose of this climate adaptation project is to use the best available information to (1) identify a suite of actions with the highest likelihood of achieving Refuge goals that are feasible and contribute to larger landscape conservation (e.g., USFWS Tidal marsh Recovery Plan 2013); (2) gain a better understanding of the projected impacts of climate change on refuge conservation targets; and (3) identify the suite of measures needed to assess conservation progress and support an adaptive decision-making framework.
