Bay Area Ecosystems Climate Change Consortium
Bay Area Ecosystems Climate Change Consortium

Our Vision of Success

Because of our work today, in 30 years the Bay Area will still be one of the world's most beautiful and ecologically diverse metropolitan areas, supporting vibrant and healthy wildlife populations and human communities.

Our Mission

BAECCC brings together natural resource managers, scientists, and others to collaboratively understand and reduce the negative impacts of climate change on Bay Area ecosystems and communities.

Our Long-Range Goals

Our work is based on the understanding that healthy ecosystems make the region more resilient to climate change, that nature is a valuable component of our economy and quality of life, and that restoring ecosystems is a cost-effective strategy for adapting to the impacts of climate change.

Thus, our long-range goals are to:

  • Reduce the negative impacts of climate change on Bay Area ecosystems and wildlife.
  • Secure nature‚Äôs ecological, recreational, and economic benefits for our community.
  • Enhance the role of natural ecosystem processes to sequester carbon, reduce flood impacts, moderate climate extremes, and address other impacts of climate change on human communities.

Our strategy to achieve these goals is described in our Five-Year Plan.
