Conservation organizations face many challenges in achieving their goals, including the uncertainty of climate change. For those working near the coast, sea level rise is an especially important factor. This work explores how organizations can decide which pieces of land to acquire and the associated benefits of various decision making models. A potentially simple and inexpensive decision method is used to analyze conservation choices in Phippsburg, Maine, regarding possible wetland migration under various sea-level rise scenarios.
