Connecting Habitat

Animals need room to roam. Providing a connected network of habitats to allow for the safe movement of wildlife is called habitat connectivity.

 

Wildlife are on the move in the Northwest. They make daily movements for food, seasonal migrations as conditions change, and generational movements claiming new ground to call home. Habitat connectivity becomes even more important as the climate changes and animals move to adapt to a changing environment.

Conservation Northwest has successfully connected habitat from the Washington Coast to the British Columbia Rockies, including reconnecting the north and central Cascades. Learn more about our latest programs at the links below!
