Ecological corridors are crucial to maintaining our natural world. Because of increased encroachment on plant and animal territories, we need to find ways of bridging ecosystems to provide habitats for wildlife while educating the public on the importance of creating biodiversity. In this collaborative project, we explore how fragmented ecosystems and, more particularly, urban forests can be linked through interconnecting corridors.
