Abstract:
Over the last 25+ years, a concerted effort has helped protect large blocks of wildlife habitat across the seacoast region. However, a rapidly developing landscape and expanding road network is increasingly fragmenting these habitat blocks from one another. This fragmentation threatens the ability for native wildlife to move among areas of suitable and required habitats, which is vital to their survival. Connect THE Coast used spatial models to identify connecting lands for wildlife across the 10-mile buffered portion of the Piscataqua-Salmon Falls watershed that drains through New Hampshire. As a result, identified wildlife corridors (i.e. connecting lands and waters with suitable and intact dispersal habitat) encompass just ten percent of the project area. However, only 13 percent of these wildlife corridors are protected. Nineteen percent of the project area is prioritized as unfragmented habitat for wildlife, that is, the large unfragmented blocks of natural habitat that the corridors run between. Nearly half of these core habitats are conserved. Connect THE Coast priorities provide the necessary information for stakeholders, whether land trusts, town planning and conservation boards, state regulators, road managers, project funders, or landowners, to identify the places to protect that will maintain opportunities for wildlife to move across the landscape, both now and into the future. While meaningful protection has begun, more focused and deliberate protection is required to secure a connected network of lands for sustainable wildlife populations.
Purpose:
CTC wildlife corridors identify conservation targets for the protection of a connected network of habitats for wildlife to persist and thrive in the context of a rapidly developing landsdcape. The network is made of of wildlife corridors that connect a series of prioritized habitat blocks.
