Wildlife Connectivity

Culvert
Fish passage allows fish access to spawning, nursery and rearing habitat. This project is in process.
meeting
Wildlife linkage workshops were held in a number of cities in Oregon in 2008.

Animals need to be able to move across landscapes to find suitable habitat - food, water, shelter and mates. The Oregon Conservation Strategy identifies “Barriers to Fish and Wildlife Passage” as one of the key conservation issues for the state of Oregon. Over time, we have built communities, roads, dams and other structures that act as barriers to the movement of fish and wildlife. These barriers reduce total habitat, create challenges to animal dispersal and reproduction and make wildlife more vulnerable to injury and death.

Goal: Provide conditions suitable for natural movement of animals across the landscape.

How to help
