Keeping Nature Connected
For nature to stay healthy, it needs to be connected to other natural areas. Part of making sure that this happens in Canada is to ensure that we have a protected and conserved areas network that is well connected.
In this context, saying that an area has ‘good connectivity’ means that the wildlife in it are able to move from one area to another. This can be important for many reasons such as migration, breeding or finding food.

Through the Pathway to Canada Target 1, a working group on this topic has been formed. The working group is currently creating guidelines and tools that can help measure Canada’s progress, and shape future protected and conserved area targets. The first of these tools are expected to be released in the fall/winter of 2019.
