What Are The Principles of Wildlife Corridor Design?

What Are The Principles of Wildlife Corridor Design?

Wildlife corridors are intended to link multiple habitat areas, with the intention of reducing the adverse effects of habitat fragmentation. Monica Bond, with the Center for Biological Diversity, clearly lays out the primary principles of wildlife corridor design. While corridors don’t prevent loss of core habitat, they can allow genetic interchange and “recolonization” of habitat. In designing corridors, the first step is naturally the evaluation of the habitats, targeting  species’ relevant needs, and looking at how the proposed area will facilitate movement and accessibility.  Bond goes into specifics of ideal corridor features, culvert design, vegetation restoration, management and enforcement practices.
