SEAFWA 2015 has ended
Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 SEAFWA Annual Meeting.

NEW THIS YEAR!
The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 2), track (i.e. Wildlife Technical Sessions), or session (i.e. Wildlife Session #1). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Changing Landscapes by Coalition), key term (i.e. striped bass), or presenter last name (i.e. Weaver). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

SYMPOSIUM OVERVIEW

The USGS suggests that the threat to ecosystems from development patterns and current practices, in the Southeast U.S., rivals threats from climate change (Terando et al. 2014).  Encroachment of major development adjacent to existing conserved lands and within landscapes with habitat connectivity is of particular concern.  Local governments have significant influence over the pattern of development and development standards through local land-use-related planning, policy-making and development design. This symposium will attempt to examine the role that wildlife biologists can effectively play in affecting landscape scale wildlife habitat conservation by informing and working with local governments in the land use planning process.  The objectives of this symposium revolve around providing case studies and lessons learned to wildlife agencies and professionals so that they may assess the effectiveness of investing in wildlife habitat conservation through local land use planning.  Specifically our symposium objectives are to:
1. Increase the understanding of wildlife professionals regarding the role of local land-use-related planning in the potential to conserve wildlife habitats across landscapes.
2. Provide case studies and lessons learned from land-use-planning related projects conducted by wildlife biologists in collaboration with local governments.
3. Examine different approaches to working with local governments to enhance landscape-scale wildlife habitat conservation.
