Climate change has important implications for many of Maine’s wild plants and animals, as well as for our communities and economy. Wilkerson will identify many of these species, discussing what determines their resilience or vulnerability, and the current efforts being made to prepare them for changes in climate and weather.
Wilkerson serves as Program Manager of the Sustainable Economies Program at Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences in Brunswick. She holds an MS in Aquatic Ecology and an MPA in Environmental Policy from Indiana University.
