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.

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.

This U.S. Forest Service report summarizes the challenges and anticipated benefits of making a national commitment to a systematic network of wildlife crossing structures to increase driver and animal safety. The authors explore the high cost of wildlife-vehicle collisions and the challenges to transforming the U.S. road network to proactively account for the needs of wildlife. The report then catalogs the myriad safety, ecological, economic, and social benefits anticipated to accrue from investing in highway crossings for wildlife. Finally, it provides recommendations for advancing solutions and building upon successful efforts to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions.
