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

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.

The network of landscapes and seascapes, an essential element of the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS), is developing through collaboration, science and technology, and leadership from state fish and wildlife agencies, federal agencies, non-government organizations, and large-scale conservation partnerships convening by way of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs). The Southeast Climate Science Center (SECSC) works with the LCCs to identify global change-related information needed by the broad conservation community, and promotes decision science relevant to current and future conservation challenges.

The Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy is already presenting a more comprehensive and collective vision for conservation in the southeast United States. Identifying the most important lands and waters that will meet the needs of fish and wildlife for future generations is not the only outcome of SECAS, but it is a critically important element. Building on conservation planning efforts already in place, SECAS brings to the broad conservation community a spatially explicit depiction of the network of landscapes and seascapes…. the emerging conservation blueprint.

The unique role of SECAS is to identify and support the steps necessary to regionally plan, implement, and evaluate actions that sustain habitat, mitigate threats, and adapt to future conditions. Strategic planning and implementation are iterative steps, looking far into the future but focused on the next steps. This symposium will present recent progress and suggest important next steps for key elements of this conservation adaptation strategy, 1) network of landscapes and seascapes, 2) conservation collaborations, and 3) landscape change information.

Guided by a conservation blueprint that represents the landscape conservation priorities of the conservation community, SECAS provides the comprehensive vision for a desired future conservation landscape that will guide decision making to generate more robust conservation outcomes between now and 2060 in the Southeast United States.
