National parks need a climate change plan
The National Parks Conservation Association has drafted a 53-page report describing “a potentially catastrophic loss of animal and plant life” in national parks due to climate change. The report urges the National Park Service to develop an overarching plan to better manage habitat and population shifts.
Among the ideas proposed is one that is shared by the Freshkills Park master plan: wildlife corridors that enable animals to migrate across parks uninhibited.
