Animals need to move. By doing so they shape and maintain the landscapes in which they live. Migratory species transport seeds, pollinate plants, and control pests. They also help shape the cultural identities of the people who live in these landscapes.
We use science such as spatial models and maps to help planners identify how and where animals move across the landscape, and how people help or hinder that movement. We apply this knowledge to support on-the-ground action, from helping wildlife safely cross roads to identifying and protecting vital lands.
