NCC: Habitat Connectivity that incorporates Climate Change

Plan and implement habitat connectivity projects in high priority areas for wildlife movement, that consider likely impacts from climate change.

Why it is important?

Improving connectivity can help wildlife species move safely through the landscape, including already threatened species like the Southern Cassowary. This becomes even more important as all species cope with the effects of changing climatic conditions, including more severe weather events, rising sea levels, changes to fruiting patterns and increasing temperatures.
