abstract

Climate change is something no one can ignore. While some people are still questioning the source of this issue, many are already working on solutions for the world’s species, for which climate change might mean another step toward extinction. We are presenting here the basic idea of an innovative conservation approach, climate-smart conservation, which has a potential to mitigate the impacts of climate change and therefore protect some vulnerable species from demise. Next to its key characteristics we present examples of already ongoing practices involving climate-smart conservation and possible use of this approach in conservation of the snow leopard.
