Summary

Sea level rise caused by climate change is an ongoing phenomenon and a concern both locally and worldwide. Low-lying coastal areas are particularly at risk to flooding and inundation, affecting a large proportion of the human population concentrated in these areas as well as natural communities-particularly animal species that depend on these habitats as a key component of their life cycle. While more local, state, and federal governments have become concerned with the potential effects that predicted sea levels will have on their communities and coastal landscapes, more information is needed on the potential effects that changes in sea level will have on coastal habitats and species.

Purpose

Developing this science is a priority for the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative. The project involves studying the effects of sea level rise on coastal habitats and birds such as the endangered whooping crane and aplomado falcon. It also involves evaluating potential scenarios for future impacts on a variety of species,including grassland birds, shorebirds, and waterfowl, so that habitat conservation measures can be planned for and developed more effectively.
