Join Us on June 10, 2021 to Learn About the Increasing Importance of Wildlife Corridors and Habitat Connectivity!

In an increasingly urbanized world, the creation of wildlife corridors have become essential in protecting and benefitting both humans and wildlife. The creation of these corridors has become a world-wide occurrence, as countries have recognized the the necessity of protecting dwindling wildlife populations. In additions, these corridors have many human benefits, most notably a reduction in vehicle-wildlife collisions. The people of California, for instance, are in the process of creating the world’s largest corridor – the Liberty Canyon Wildlife Crossing (photo enclosed). Additional corridor benefits for wildlife include: greater genetic diversity, improved access to food and shelter, improved habitat connectivity, improved juvenile dispersal, enhanced seasonal migrations and many more!

Please join us on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 7:00 EST as Dr. Liz Rutledge, North Carolina Wildlife Federation’s (NCWF) Director of Wildlife Resources, discusses the importance of wildlife corridors and provides an update on NCWF’s initiatives in this area.
