Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region

Adapting Conservation Efforts for a Sustainable Future

Our vision of “climate smart” conservation considers the benefits to people that result from our actions to protect and restore nature.

Climate change poses new challenges to decision-makers as they work to restore and maintain biodiversity, create comprehensive policies and protect the natural systems that people depend on. The Conservancy’s Great Lakes Projecthas developed a regional climate strategy to address the impacts of changing temperature and precipitation patterns on our freshwater, coastal, forest and agricultural resources.

Learn how we’re incorporating climate considerations into our work across the Great Lakes region by downloading our case studies, watching video interviews, accessing climate adaptation tools and learning more about our network of climate partners
