As Earth's climate warms, animals and plants need to be able to migrate in order to continue to thrive. Computer modeling by climate scientists shows that the Southern Appalachians are the crucial pathway for plants and animals to move northwards for survival.
There are many benefits land and water conservation has on building resilience to climate change impacts. Join SAHC and the Wildlands Network to learn more about how wildlife corridors are one of the most critical ways to build human and wildlife resilience to climate change impacts
Through science-based research and innovative policy, Wildlands Network works to prevent biodiversity loss, promote climate change resilience and transform transportation networks. By collaborating with local partners, like SAHC, they empower communities across North America to safeguard their wild spaces.
