The IPCC is looking for new authors for the next phase of their report.  They are seeking experts with wildlife backgrounds to contribute to the report. I don't think you necessarily have to be an 'expert' on climate change, but merely knowledgeable in your field and be able to contribute that information to the IPCC in the context of what they are doing. Here's request:

Invitation for Recommendations for U.S. Authors and Reviewers to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  On January 21, the State Department posted a public notice on the Federal Register for recommendations for U.S. authors and reviewers to the 5th Assessment Report of the IPCC. Qualified U.S. experts who wish to be considered should submit an electronic application and supporting material to the United States Global Change Research Program website http://www.globalchange.gov..

Please distribute the attached Federal Register to your staff and to climate change experts who work closely with your staff. It would be beneficial to have experts from wildlife disciplines to be part of the IPCC, particularly those who are knowledgeable of the needs of state fish and wildlife agencies. The deadline for nominations is February 15. Staff contact Dr. Arpita Choudhury; achoudhury at fishwildlife.org<mailto:achoudhury at fishwildlife.org><mailto:achoudhury at fishwildlife.org><mailto:achoudhury at fishwildlife.org>
