This chapter builds on the Australian context to explore how we might deal with the challenges likely to face birds as a result of climate change over the next half-century. It first introduces some general management principles, then detail options for action and finally briefly explores issues surrounding the timing of management responses. A more detailed outline of management options is provided by Franklin et al. (2014). A comprehensive analysis of climate change adaptation and Australian birds is found in Garnett et al. (2013) and Garnett and Franklin (2014). As climate changes, those goals of conservation that are implicitly based on the assumption that climate is static must be set aside. Climate change is one among many threats (stressors) facing species, and the impact of climate change may be hidden by threats that seem more imminent.
