Additional Resources on Habitat Connectivity

The Wildlife Conservation Society's Assessment and Planning for Ecological Connectivity: A Practical Guide

This 2011 publication provides comprehensive and detailed guidance on assessing and planning for connectivity, synthesizing current knowledge based on experts views expressed in a WCS workshop in April, 2009 and a review of current literature.

Conservation Corridor

Conservation Corridor aims to bridge the science and practice of conservation corridors. Through regular digests, it offers up-to-date findings from science that will inform applied conservation and highlight new innovations in applied conservation, with the goal of guiding the direction of applied science toward management needs. It also provides a wide-ranging, searchable library of publications relating to connectivity.


CorridorDesign is the website hosting the CorridorDesigner modeling tool and associated documentation. In addition to providing a modeling tool, this site includes helpful guidance and background on the overall process in its Designing Corridors Overview.

Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group

The Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group is a science-based partnership that is composed of participants representing land and natural resource management agencies, organizations, tribes, and universities. The working group is co-led by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Washington Department of Transportation. Their website contains reports on their connectivity analyses, links to some modeling tools, information on model validation, and other resources.

Highway Wilding

Highway Wilding provides solutions that help reduce conflicts between transportation corridors, wildlife conservation, and large-scale landscape connectivity. Our goal is to gather the essential scientific information and to develop the appropriate tools to address current and future ecosystem management priorities as they relate to maintaining landscape-scale connectivity across transportation corridors and changing climates. Our website is the "go-to" source for information on the effects of highways on wildlife populations and the effectiveness of Parks Canada's highway mitigation measures on the Trans-Canada Highway in Banff National Park, and beyond. It contains information for transportation planners, wildlife researchers, decision-makers and the general public.
