Habitat preserves survive when connected allowing wildlife totravel freely often times through corridors
Wildlife Corridor MSCP Design Objectives.
Vol.1 4.1.2 Biological Objectives Maintain and enhance/restore functional wildlife corridors and habitat linkages between critical biological resource areas. Wildlife habitat patches should be linked by functional corridors to minimize problems associated with habitat fragmentation (Dickman 1987; Saunders et al. 1991; Rolstad 1991). Whenever possible, corridors should be of high quality habitat and of the same habitat type as the areas they connect. These landscape linkages are essential as pathways for genetic and demographic interchange. They are also important for facilitating daily, annual, and seasonal movements and, for some species, permitting dispersal to breeding and foraging areas. The preserve system will also provide for wildlife corridors between areas of high species richness.
