Wildlife Habitat Connectivity and Conservation

All wildlife species rely on the ability to move throughout the landscape to complete their life cycles. During different parts of the day, season, or year, wildlife must move to access food and water, shelter, opportunities to mate, and favorable sites for raising young. The routes they use to make these movements can span anywhere from a small patch of forest to crossing multiple countries. Human and natural changes to the landscape can affect the ability of wildlife to move by adding obstacles, inducing changes in their behavior, impacting critical migration stopover sites, and increasing habitat fragmentation. Conserving these routes and maintaining habitat connectivity is important for the persistence of wildlife populations and for landscape health.
