Ecos - A Review of Conservation;2007, Vol. 28 Issue 3/4, p2
The article outlines the ideas of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) for the need of nature conservation to adapt to the challenges of climate change in Great Britain. RSPB mentioned how conservation organizations could make habitats and wildlife populations more resilient to climate change and to accommodate the movement of wildlife as it tries to find suitable climate space. It also requests proper funding for current wildlife conservation programs and policies. Moreover, it mentioned that wildlife continue to need protection from development and pollution.
