This fact sheet explains habitat connectivity legislation Colorado, Senate Joint Resolution 21-021, which passed unanimously in 2021. This bipartisan-led legislation a) commissions report identifying wildlife corridors, their benefits, and voluntary policies and programs that would support willing landowners to improve habitat connectivity across the
landscape; b) encourages state agencies to build on Governor Jared Polis’ executive order on big game migration by collecting data on habitat connectivity for all native wildlife species; and c) establishes a working group to develop state policies to protect wildlife corridors.

Estos Lineamientos de la CMAP de la UICN se basan en la mejor ciencia y práctica disponibles para mantener, mejorar y restaurar la conectividad ecológica entre áreas protegidas, otras medidas efectivas de conservación basadas en área (OMEC) y otros ecosistemas intactos. Por primera vez, esta publicación introduce una definición común y recomienda el reconocimiento formal de los corredores ecológicos para que sirvan como bloques de construcción críticos de redes ecológicas en conjunto con áreas protegidas y OMEC. Además, estos Lineamientos también incluyen 25 estudios de caso que demuestran los enfoques actuales para conservar la conectividad ecológica y las redes ecológicas.
