birds & wildlife: climate change and the US Fish & Wildlife Service
The US Fish & Wildlife Service has developed a strategy to deal with climate change. There are "estimates that approximately 20-30 percent of the world’s plant and animal species assessed as of 2006 are likely to be at increasingly high risk of extinction as global mean temperatures exceed a warming of 2 – 3°C above preindustrial levels". You can read about their planning at this link.
