Slide 35: Facilitated migration
For many of the species that are able to find new habitats in the future, it is very likely that some level of human facilitation will be needed to help them migrate. In a simple case, this might be simply managing the areas outside of conservation areas, to ensure that these areas are friendly for the species to migrate through them. In this regard, community based conservation may be an important strategy. Equally it might be important to form what are termed contractual reserves, where the landowner enters into a contract with conservation authorities to keep his land for conservation purposes. Less severe and less expensive methods could be through incentives to landowners, use of private reserves, and just general education. In many cases landowners are not aware of the need for migration, and simply understanding the benefits that they can give to conservation might be sufficient for them to engage in conservation.
