[Extract] In the best of times, wildlife management is an uncertain science (Sinclair et al. 2006). A climate-change world will not be the best of times, with a large increase in stress on many wildlife species and ecosystems along with a major increase in the uncertainty of management outcomes. Dealing with these challenges will at once require a major re-think of attitudes and approaches and, in seeming paradox, an intensification of existing management practices. As explained in the next section, the paradox arises mainly because the greatest threat to wildlife is likely to be the interaction between climate change and other stressors, and because dealing with those other stressors may often be the most, or even only, practical way of reducing stress from climate change.
