The Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative (PICCC) was established to assist those who manage native species, island ecosystems, and key cultural resources in adapting their management to climate change. Guided by a diverse steering committee of land/resource managers, the PICCC serviced a vast area across Hawaiʻi and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands. This report presents key findings from evaluative research investigating PICCC’s achievements in the Hawaiian Islands.

Ecological corridors are one of the best, and possibly only viable, management tools to maintain biodiversity at large scales and to allow species, and ecological processes, to track climate change. This document has been assembled as a summary of the best available information about managing these systems, with an aim to provide managers with a convenient guidance document and tool to assist in applying scientific management principles to management of 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.

This report contains a summary of past research and new knowledge about the effectiveness of mitigation measures aimed at reducing animal-vehicle collisions and at providing safe crossing opportunities for wildlife. The measures are aimed at terrestrial large bodied wild mammal species, free roaming large livestock species (e.g. cattle, horses), free roaming large feral species (e.g. “wild” horses and burros), and small animal species (amphibians, reptiles, and small mammals).

Wildlife crossing structures have been shown to be one of the most effective means of reducing animal-vehicle collisions on highways. Yet the widespread implementation of such structures, especially wildlife overpasses, has been hindered by their perceived and actual expense. This report compiles strategies and considerations for reducing costs during all stages of design and construction.
