Preserving and/or creating wildlife corridors between and among core natural areas is essential for biological diversity conservation. Emphasis is often placed on wildlife, but we all know that animals depend on plantlife for food, shelter, and general habitat. Plants, like animals, must migrate across the geographic landscape, interbreed to maintain genetic diversity, respond to environmental change, and adapt to new environments. In this presentation I will discuss the importance of wildlife corridors for all species, but with an emphasis on plants. I will also provide information on the national, regional, and local efforts to ensure conservation connectivity.
