This webinar presentation describes how a national wildlife refuge worked with geospatial analysts to incorporate sea level rise projections into conservation efforts. The team used two geospatial tools: the Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM) to predict potential marsh migration caused by sea level rise—and the Habitat Priority Planner, which incorporated these predictions to identify priority conservation areas for key species.
- Utilize Digital Coast data sets and tools to model sea level rise impacts in a coastal community
- Describe how the Habitat Priority Planner helped identify priority conservation areas for wetland migration
- Identify ways in which communities are using project outputs for local conservation planning
