Habitat Corridors: a Strategy for Resilience

A habitat corridor is a continuous swath of natural and agricultural lands. They're critical for maintaining the quality of our water, forests, and wildlife in a rapidly changing climate. Strengthening and developing these linkages allows animals and plants to migrate from one habitat to another providing access to breeding grounds, food sources, and even to escape wildfire. As climate change alters the vegetation and habitability of current natural areas and wildlife seek more viable habitats, these linkages becoming increasingly important.

Habitat corridors are a proven strategy for protecting species richness and biodiversity, and result in healthier, more connected ecosystems that are resilient to stressors like climate change and natural disasters.
