Climate Change and California’s Wildlife Action Plan Update

SWAP logo

At the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, we are working to fully integrate climate change into the current update of our State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). To that end, the Climate Science Program has developed a SWAP climate working group to pull together resources and expertise that will inform the update process. This page provides materials that will be useful to CDFW staff and partners during the revision as they address climate change issues in their respective ecoregions and across California. If you wish to submit suggestions or would like more information on the working group please email
