How do wildlife routes create benefits for wildlife and local communities?
Land sparing for conservation, large-scale development projects, population growth, urban expansion and other changes in land use have increased the pressure over land in the region. Fencing, roads, and loss of vegetation cover have all contributed to fragmentation of landscapes, reduction of connectivity between ecosystems and habitats, and freedom of movement for both wildlife and livestock farmers. This project aims to engage key stakeholders in order to identify and secure dual-purpose corridors for wildlife and livestock to move around the landscape. Expected outcomes include protection for wildlife species, reduced conflicts between human life and wildlife, and the securing of agrarian livelihoods and culture in a changing landscape.
