Climate Change and Sustainability
"The management implications for protecting species, biological communities, and physical resources within finite land management boundaries in a rapidly changing climate are complex and without precedent." - Jon Jarvis, Director of the National Park Service (October 28, 2009)
Apostle Islands National Lakeshore staff discuss the impacts of climate change on the park and how the National Park Service is responding in a 5 minute video produced by the NPS Climate Change Response Program. See the video here.
Did You Know?
There are actually 22 Apostle Islands (not 12, as might be implied by the name "Apostle"). All but one are included in the national lakeshore.
