Landscape Connectivity

The Wildlands Project
The Project’s work to reconnect the continent begins with “MegaLinkages” – vast pathways that tie natural places together. Within each continental MegaLinkage, the project proposes regional systems of core protected areas connected to one another by “wildlife linkages,” mosaics of public and private lands that provide safe passageways for wildlife to travel freely from place to place.

Gondwana Link
South-western Australia is an amazing place where exceptional concentrations of endemic species are undergoing exceptional loss of habitat. Gondwana Link is a landscape scale vision involving individuals and local, regional and national groups working together to achieve reconnected country in which entire ecosystems, and the fundamental ecological processes that underpin them, are restored and maintained. Watch video on Gondwana Link.

The Cloudbridge Project
The Cloudbridge Reserve Project aims to preserve and reforest an important gap in the cloud forest adjoining the Chirripó Pacifico river on the slopes of Mt Chirripó, the highest mountain in Costa Rica. Chirripó National Park lies towards the northern end of one of the most important biological zones of all Central America.

Sky Island Alliance
The Alliance is an organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of native biological diversity in the sky islands of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico.

Rewilding Institute
The Institute’s mission is to develop and promote the ideas and strategies to advance continental-scale conservation in North America, particularly the need for large carnivores and a permeable landscape for their movement, and to offer a bold, scientifically-credible, practically achievable, and hopeful vision for the future of wild Nature and human civilization in North America.

Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative
The Initiative combines science and stewardship to ensure that the world-renowned wilderness, wildlife, native plants, and natural processes of the Yellowstone to Yukon region continue to function as an interconnected web of life, capable of supporting all of its natural and human communities, for current and future generations.

Legacy – The Landscape Connection
LEGACY-TLC is a collaboration of community members, landowners, professional scientists, educators, researchers, and students united under the vision of creating an ecological-based, science-informed, and collectively built conservation strategy to reconnect the fragmented landscapes of their ecoregion.

Wilderness Workshop
The Workshop not only defends pristine public lands from new threats, but also helps restore the functional wildness of a landscape fragmented by human activity.

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society
CPAWS Saskatchewan is a non-profit conservation organization dedicated to preservation of boreal forest and grassland ecosystems in Saskatchewan that focuses on public education, establishing new protected areas, and promoting wise land use both inside and outside of protected areas.

Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project
The Project utilizes conservation science principles and geographic information systems to identify and protect wildlands critical to the preservation of native biodiversity in the Southern Rockies including the protection and restoration of aquatic and terrestrial connectivity for native species and their habitats.

NOAA Coastal Services Center
The Landscape Characterization and Restoration (LCR) program was developed at the NOAA Coastal Services Center in response to several observations, including: (1) Recognition that resource management requires interdisciplinary approaches that integrate physical, ecological, and socioeconomic knowledge, often at the spatial scale of a watershed or larger unit; and (2) The importance of spatial analysis as a means for organizing the large amount of information needed to manage coastal resources.

The Cultural Landscape Foundation
The Foundation is the only not-for-profit foundation in America dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of the importance and irreplaceable legacy of cultural landscapes. Through education, technical assistance, and outreach, the Cultural Landscape Foundation broadens the support and understanding for cultural landscapes nationwide in hopes of saving our priceless heritage for future generations.
