Helping wildlife get where they need to go - safely

Habitat connectivity, in the form of large cores of intact habitat and corridors connecting them, is critical to ensuring a sustainable future for Virginia.  Wild Virginia has been leading the way, bringing people together to to improve habitat connectivity in Virginia, and we are a driving force behind the multidisciplinary, multi-agency group called the Virginia Safe Wildlife Corridors Collaborative  (VSWCC). This group works to reduce habitat fragmentation issues caused by Virginia roads and improve habitat connectivity. Learn more about our efforts here. Wild Virginia helped to pass legislation to create a Wildlife Corridor Action Plan (WCAP) in 2020.  The WCAP will identify and protect wildlife corridors in Virginia helping both people and wildlife move more safely.

What’s happening now?

In 2021, Wild Virginia is worked to pass SB1274 that would build on the Wildlife Corridor Action Plan and make it even stronger. Read more here.
