Natural Community Conservation Plans (NCCPs) are intended to protect large habitat reserves that are connected to each other, and connected to adjacent conserved lands, to sustain effective movement of wildlife. Applying NCCP principles to habitat conservation should allow species to adapt to climate change, allowing shifts in distributions, adapting to new habitats, and/or utilizing protected refugia. Climate change should be considered throughout the planning process.
