Climate change has some Texas animals fleeing the Texas heat


The simple fact is, species may be migrating, shifting, because of climate changes," said Ted Hollingsworth, land conservation director for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. "If we want to preserve those, keep them in Texas, we need to be thinking ahead."

That’s part of the state land and water plan’s new science-based approach to conservation and preservation. Its overall goals are to conserve and manage natural resources and create opportunities for outdoor recreation.

…This year, Hollingsworth said, he and others have worked to develop a new strategy that incorporates climate change.
