Additional info on Pathways for Wildlife:
Pathways for Wildlife is a research organization developed by Wildlife Ecologist Tanya Diamond, and Wildlife Researcher Ahíga Snyder. Pathways for Wildlife works with land trusts, conservation organizations, and transportation agencies, to help identify important wildlife and habitat linkages for land conservation efforts by conducting wildlife connectivity surveys and implementing connectivity designs for wildlife movement within a landscape. Data collection used to develop wildlife connectivity plans include; data from field cameras, roadkill surveys, tracking data, GIS habitat suitability modeling and linkage analyses.
Several projects have resulted in significant funding for land conservation to protect wildlife linkages that animals have been documented using to travel through in various landscapes. Pathways also work with Caltrans and local transportation authorities to implement connectivity designs along highways, such as installing culverts as wildlife crossing structures.
