The predicted growth of the San Diego/Tijuana region will cause increased pressure on existing ecosystems?not only their survivability and sustainability, but also their potential to adapt to future climate change. Southern California has implemented a Multi-Species Conservation Plan (MSCP) designed to provide habitat and ecosystems for the region?s threatened, endangered, and endemic species. Though it is a step in the right direction, the MSCP may not take into consideration that habitat, ecosystem, and species requirements may have to adapt to future changes in climate. Is the region and its policies ready to adapt as our climate changes and the pressures on existing habitats and species are amplified?
