corridor


Protected bands of land that link two or more patches of habitat in highly fragmented areas. They enable animals to move to new areas if faced with threats such as overpopulation, fire or food scarcity. In particular, these corridors are critical to the survival of wide-ranging mammals that require larger expanses of habitat in order to survive.
