Sarasota Bay Estuary Program (SBEP) recently launched the Sea Level Rise (SLR) brochure. There are a limited number of printed editions available. An electronic version is available on the SBEP website. The purpose of the publication is to provide the public, community leaders and elected officials tips for adaptation planning. The focus is on adaptation for the impacts of sea level rise so that critical human systems and natural systems can continue to function effectively. http://SarasotaBay.org
The SLR brochure provides maps, tools and tips that can also be broadly applicable to many other climate-related impacts such as heat waves and heavier precipitation periods, increased drought and more extreme weather events. This project was funded by a grant received from the EPA Climate Ready Estuaries Program. SBEP contracted and partnered with Mote Marine Laboratory to complete the brochure and SLR visualization tool. Please visit SarasotaBay.org to view the SLR brochure and visualization tool or contact Sara Kane at Sara@SarasotaBay.org to request a printed copy of the brochure.
