The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the release of the Regional Coastal Resilience Assessment and the creation of a new analytical tool that can identify areas where conservation projects would best protect human communities and improve habitat for wildlife.
Invasive species are a major threat to biodiversity, second only to habitat destruction. Almost half of all imperiled species in the United States are endangered because of the impact of invasive species.
A study coauthored by NatureServe’s Miguel Fernandez has established a new framework for monitoring changes in species’ populations and distribution and thereby assisting efforts to conserve the world’s biodiversity.
NatureServe Latin American and the Caribbean Director, Miguel Fernandez, announced, “I am honored to welcome our newest LAC Network Council elected by absolute majority. They each bring a unique background, with extremely valuable experiences and expertise, as well as a passion for biodiversity conservation, that make them an asset to the region and to the NatureServe family.”
The Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (BIP), together with NatureServe and UN Environment’s World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), have launched a visual, online platform to aid decision-makers in policy-making and reporting across all spatial scales.
Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change is a prerequisite for developing effective strategies to conserve them. The last three decades have seen exponential growth in the number of studies evaluating how, how much, why, when, and where species will be impacted by climate change.
