The Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project

Interactive project gallery on the online mapping platform Data Basin.

Data Basin, used by more than 15,000 scientists, natural resource practitioners, students, and educators, enables users to explore and organize spatial data and information, and provides a mapping platform for creating custom visualizations and completing analyses.

About the project

The Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project engaged science-practice partnerships to identify potential climate impacts on wildlife habitat connectivity in the transboundary region of Washington and British Columbia, and adaptation actions for addressing these impacts.

A primary goal of this project was to increase practitioners’ capacity to access, interpret, and apply existing climate and connectivity models to their decision-making. For this reason, many of the data layers included in this gallery have been reproduced with slight modification from existing sources; detailed information on original data sources can be found in the metadata provided with each layer.

Funding for this work was generously provided by: Charlotte Martin Foundation; Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative; Northern Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative; Northwest Climate Science Center; Wilburforce Foundation.

Overview Report (PDF; 6 MB) | Describes the project’s rationale, partnerships, approach, and key findings.

Additional reports describing key findings for each case study species, vegetation system, and region. These reports are provided as appendices to the overview report (above), and are intended to act as stand-alone resources; they include summary descriptions of the project and assessment process, key findings, and all materials used to identify potential climate impacts s and adaptation actions for each case study (e.g., conceptual models, habitat connectivity models, and models of projected future changes in species distributions, vegetation communities, and climate variables).
