With climate change looming, the conservation organization has shifted its focus toward the challenges global warming poses to ecosystems and biological diversity. Using this two-year grant, Defenders of Wildlife is working with the U.S. Geological Survey’s new National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center, the Obama administration, and others to develop and implement a national climate-change adaptation strategy.
