Description du projet (anglais)

The Greens to Hudson linkage (also known as the Berkshire Wildlife Linkage) covers roughly 2.4 million acres of western Massachusetts, southern Vermont, eastern New York, and northern Connecticut, connecting the southern Green Mountains in Vermont to the Hudson Highlands in New York. Efforts to maintain and restore connectivity within the Berkshire Wildlife Linkage focus on a 742,000 acre north-south structural pathway through the middle of the linkage that currently allows movement of a range of native species, including otter, porcupine, foxes, and larger mammals such as bear and bobcat. An interactive online map where people can look at the linkage boundaries, priorities, and underlying raw data on connectivity can be accessed ­ at this address http://bit.do/linkagemap
