NASA has developed a partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Smithsonian Institution to begin new research efforts to bring the overall view of our climate from space satellites down to Earth to benefit our wildlife and key ecosystems.
Observations of our planet’s climate from NASA’s Earth-observing satellites will help us better understand how different species and ecosystems respond to climate changes. These observations will also allow us to further develop tools to manage wildlife and natural resources.
