Without much doubt, climate change is having a significant impact on species conservation. In the midst of a mass extinction crisis, it is simply wise to consider the current state of wildlife law and whether it is adequately equipped to stave the worst climate change outcomes. In certain cases, only preventing further or significant temperature increases will ward off extinction, but in many cases, species, if given the opportunity, could adapt to a new climate-affected reality. Ensuring adequate adaptation requires that conservation planning provide for resiliency-the capacity to respond to disturbances.
