What is Resilience?

Ecological resilience often describes the capacity of an ecosystem to respond to a disturbance by resisting damage and recovering quickly without shifting to an alternative state or losing function or services. Building resilience can reduce risks and vulnerabilities of ecosystems – and the communities that depend on them – to climate change impacts.

Protecting the Coast In a Changing Climate – 12 Rivers Conservation Initiative Incorporates Coastal Resilience Into Planning

12 Rivers started planning for protection of this changing coast with a map from the Maine Natural Areas Program that made it possible to incorporate a coastal buffer into resilience planning. Estimating a one-meter sea level rise, an approximately 300-meter area around the new coast was identified as a coastal buffer. This buffer would provide a protected area around new tidal marsh and mudflat habitat and allow for continued access to the changing coast.

Build Resilience

All of the science, maps and models in the world won’t get us closer to building resilience without land conservation on the ground. Land trusts have been leaders in protecting hard-to-protect places, like fertile lowlands, that provide critical diversity of habitat types. The lessons learned from selecting and preserving lands at scale in a shifting environment will guide our field now and for generations ahead. Thank you for your hard work and ongoing leadership and commitment to saving the lands we love!
