This guidance is designed to help project sponsors and lead entities identify key climate-related risks for Chinook salmon, highlight some relevant climate resources, and provide case study examples of projects that are working to build ecosystem resilience. It is not designed to be a comprehensive summary of the potential impacts of climate change on Chinook salmon populations in the Puget Sound region, nor is it a complete library of potential strategies and actions that can be used in restoration and protection projects to reduce climate change risks.

EcoAdapt, the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, and other regional partners conducted a vulnerability assessment to identify how and why focal resources across the North-central California coast and ocean region are likely to be affected by future climate conditions. Climate change vulnerability of 44 focal resources, including eight habitats, populations of 31 species, and five ecosystem services was assessed by considering exposure and sensitivity to climate changes and non-climate stressors and adaptive capacity.

Climate change experts Drs. Lara Hansen and Jennifer Hoffman consider the implications of climate change for key resource management issues of our time—invasive species, corridors and connectivity, ecological restoration, pollution, and many others. How will strategies need to change to facilitate adaptation to a new climate regime? What steps can we take to promote resilience?

Climate Savvy offers a wide-ranging exploration of how scientists, managers, and policymakers can use the challenge of climate change as an opportunity to build a more holistic and effective philosophy. Based on collaboration with a wide range of scientists, conservation leaders, and practitioners, the authors present general ideas as well as practical steps and strategies that can help cope with this new reality.
