"From the forested mountains and grasslands of California's northwest to the sand dunes, chaparral, and deserts of the southeast, habitat corridors--areas linking the places where wild things live--are being destroyed at a terrible rate.Scientists believe that without migration corridors allowing animals to move between protected areas and other public lands, Californians risk losing some of the most important and charismatic species found in the state--mountain lions, bobcats, badgers, salmon and steelhead, to name a few.Now, the first step in saving those threatened wildlife corridors--identifying exactly where they are-has been completed, in the form of a 79-page report, Missing Linkages: Restoring Connectivity to the California Landscape.
