To advance climate change adaptation and management for wildlife, it is imperative to provide actionable recommendations for both population and habitat management. We conducted a comprehensive review of over 1300 peer-reviewed articles for adaptation actions suitable for wildlife management in terrestrial ecosystems. To evaluate more than 3,000 recommendations, collected from the literature review, we used a hybrid approach of qualitative and quantitative textual analysis methods. The result is a current, comprehensive review of relevant climate adaptation strategies for wildlife at a scale and resolution that can inform on-the-ground management. Finally, we engaged wildlife managers to develop the final product, a menu of more than 90 adaptation actions, to inform planning and management decisions in an accessible format.
