The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network has developed a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for Shorebird Habitat tool in conjunction with the Manomet Center for Conservation Science and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The tool is designed to assess vulnerability due to:
- Sea Level Rise
- Climate-related changes in precipitation and temperature
- Changes in frequency and intensity of storms
The tool was developed in 2009-10, and included a few pilot projects in Virginia, Massachussetts and New Jersey. Anyone have any experience with this tool? Has it been useful to your project?
