The Nature Conservancy’s Resilient Sites for Terrestrial Conservation project identifies the areas estimated to be the most climate resilient for each of 62 characteristic environments in Eastern North America. This new version, released in October 2016, builds on and replaces two previously released studies for the Northeast and Southeast regions. The study developed new methods for mapping species-relevant microclimates and highly connected lands in order to identify places where species are most likely to persist.
This mapping tool allows non-profits, communities, and policy makers to view the resilience results and use basic analytic tools to understand the Resilient Sites Report and assess specific areas.
