Climate Savvy, with Lara Hansen and Jennifer Hoffman


Climate Savvy: Adapting Conservation and Resource Management to a Changing World

Climate change experts Lara Hansen and Jennifer Hoffman consider the implications of climate change for key resource management issues of our time—invasive species, corridors and connectivity, ecological restoration, pollution, and many others. How will strategies need to change to facilitate adaptation to a new climate regime? What steps can we take to promote resilience?

Climate Savvy offers a wide-ranging exploration of how scientists, managers, and policymakers can use the challenge of climate change as an opportunity to build a more holistic and effective philosophy. Based on collaboration with a wide range of scientists, conservation leaders, and practitioners, the authors present general ideas as well as practical steps and strategies that can help cope with this new reality.

Bainbridge Island author Lara J. Hansen is Executive Director of EcoAdapt, a nonprofit organization focused on adapting conservation and resource management to climate change. Poulsbo author Jennifer R. Hoffman is Director of Projects for EcoAdapt. With Jennifer Biringer, they wrote and edited Buying Time: A User's Manual for Building Resistance and Resilience to Climate Change in Natural Systems.
