The Nature Conservancy is working with the state Department of Ecology, Sea Grant and others through the Washington Coastal Resilience Project (WCRP) to update Washington’s coastal planning guidance on sea-level rise, and are using Coastal Resilience to visualize flooding potential for communities in the hopes of influencing restoration decisions to maintain resilience along a changing coastline.
Join us on a journey through Washington’s ecosystems, to find out how climate-change impacts each individually — as well as comprehensively. By understanding how our landscapes, neighborhoods and climate are all connected, we can better forge our own connections to adapt together.
Washington has more than 2,300 miles of coastline that sustain communities, livelihoods, recreation and diverse ecosystems. Though robust, our coasts are especially vulnerable to climate-change impacts, including flooding, sea-level rise, increased erosion and others.
