NPCA Applauds Call for National Wildlife Strategy

Joins Advocacy Groups to Highlight Need to Protect Wildlife, Natural Resources, and Local Communities from Climate Change

 

Statement by Mark Wenzler, vice president of clean air and climate with the National Parks Conservation Association, on today's release of the federal Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force report which calls for a national strategy to help wildlife, natural resources, and local communities adapt to the harmful impacts of climate change:

"Drought, wildfire, invasive species, and other consequences of climate change threaten not only our national parks but also the communities that rely on healthy natural resources for their economic well-being. 

"Better coordination among federal agencies is a first step toward combating these threats, but ultimately Congress and the Administration must put real money on the table to safeguard our forests, rivers, oceans, parks, and communities from climate change today, for future generations to enjoy tomorrow.”
