SC Wildlands is working to maintain and restore connections between wildlands in the South Coast Ecoregion through an effort called the South Coast Missing Linkages Project. This project addresses fragmentation at a landscape scale. Our approach is to identify and prioritize linkages that conserve essential biological and ecological processes. This project gathers the most current biological data for each linkage design to ensure the viability of the full complement of species native to the region. Our methods involve partnering, gathering existing data, identifying impediments to and opportunities for connectivity, and stimulating a collaborative effort for each important linkage. It is our hope that the South Coast Missing Linkages effort will serve as a catalyst for directing funds and attention toward the protection of ecological connectivity for the South Coast Ecoregion and beyond.
