Speaker: Jacob Blandford, Climate Adaptation Manager at AFWA
Fish, wildlife, and plants provide services that benefit people, such as food, clean air, drinking water, and shade on a sunny day. Proper management of these natural resources can help us address some of the problems we are facing today, such as climate change. Using nature to address societal problems is known as “Nature-based Solutions” and these win-win situations provide benefits to both people and animals. In this webinar, Jacob will explain how flowers, beavers, and oysters are some of our best allies in the effort to adapt to climate change.
Jacob Blandford is the Climate Adaptation Program Manager for the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. He aims to help states incorporate climate change adaptation into fish, wildlife, and habitat management efforts in order to sustain healthy populations of animals in a changing climate.
