Episode 302: Habitat Islands and Wildlife Corridors
Habitat islands are areas that contain all the necessities for wildlife to survive and thrive. But too often these islands are not large enough to provide long-term support for the animals who live within. Areas surrounding these islands are not hospitable to wildlife, and wildlife that naturally venture beyond the confines of their habitat islands are often at risk of conflict with humans and human development. The concept of wildlife corridors has become a way to direct animal movement away from, or safely through, dangers caused by humans. As humans continue to dominate the landscape, habitat islands and wildlife corridors will become increasingly necessary for the survival of our many wild species.
