Wildlife corridors for climate resilience

Climate change presents long-term and immediate challenges for Bay Area wildlife. In the long-term, some animals will be unable to thrive in their current locations. Animals also face more immediate climate change impacts like wildfire, drought, and floods. In this webinar we’ll share how animals can safely navigate a changing climate by using wildlife corridors as “escape routes” to move to more suitable places, as well as how Pepperwood is using wildlife cameras to monitor the health of wildlife populations and their response to increasing risks of fire.

As Pepperwood’s Conservation Analyst, Morgan Gray integrates expertise in ecological principles and geospatial modeling to help conservationists keep landscapes functional and connected. In her spare time, Morgan climbs rocks and explores the SF Bay Area with her dogs. Morgan holds a PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from UC Berkeley.

This lecture will consist of a live multimedia presentation followed by facilitated Q&A.
