Coda: Safe Passage, The Next Great Migration

Sonia Shah’s policy recommendations are found at the end. She is very clear, which self appreciated. She offers concrete examples of what is being done, and what more needs to be done.

Instead of expanding the borders of isolated parks and reserves, new conservation efforts are seeking to stitch together private lands, ranches, farms, and parks into wide, long corridors across which animals can safely move. The Yellowstone to Yukon initiative, for example, has brought hundreds of conservation together to manage more than five-hundred thousand square miles stretching southward from northern Canada, to ease wildlife movement across the entire expanse. A similarly ambitious project aims to protect millions of square miles of jaguar habitat across fourteen countries from Mexico to Argentina. Conservationists have pinpointed at least twenty places around the world, including biodiverse but highly fragmented locales such as the Eastern Arc mountains of Tanzania and the Atlantic forest of Brazil, where similar wildlife corridors could connect isolated fragments of protected lands into more than half a million acres of continuous forest across which species could freely move.
