Permanent land protection is one of the best ways to support wildlife in a changing climate by providing a network of connected habitats and refugia to support biodiversity as temperatures rise and conditions change.
Conservation organizations can include climate impacts into their conservation planning and prioritization. For an example, see Moose Mountains Regional Greenways' Conservation Action Plan.
