Summary  The potential impacts of climate change on threatened species, populations and communities are considered. It is suggested that minor changes to legislation will be required to address the consequences of movement of threatened species but that threatened species legislation will remain relevant as an important tool for prioritizing conservation actions. The importance of taking proactive steps now to permit future movement of species and communities across fragmented landscapes is emphasized.
