Yurok Climate Change Adaptation Plan for Water & Aquatic Resources

Type: 
Tribal Adaptation Plans
Organization: 
Yurok Tribe
Description: 

The goal of this Adaptation Plan was to assess the vulnerabilities and resiliencies of Yurok waters, aquatic species, and people in the face of climate change and to identify actions and strategies that will allow Yurok lifeways, culture, and health to grow despite the changing climate. And while this Plan does not address all aquatic species nor the many, varied terrestrial ecosystems and resources, it is hoped that these will be the focus of future planning efforts.
