Wildlife corridors connect fragmented patches of habitat. The main goal of a corridor (also referred to as a linkage) is to facilitate movement of plants and animals through dispersal and migration. The fragmentation of natural areas within Ventura County due to development patterns limits the ability of plant and animal populations to disperse and move to areas they need for survival. Within natural resource management and conservation communities, this issue is considered among the most urgent of biological resource concerns. Wildlife biology specialists consider the maintenance (or enhancement) of existing habitat connectivity linkages, or connections between large, natural areas of protected habitat, as well as the native vegetation linkages within such corridors, as essential to ensure the future health of the County’s natural resources.
