Summary

In 2007, American Wildlands (Bozeman, MT) initiated a "Priority Linkage Assessment" (PLA) through which we have identified, cataloged and prioritized the threats to, and opportunities for, maintaining connectivity in the U.S. Northern Rockies (Montana, Idaho and Wyoming). The process involved interviewing wildlife movement and connectivity experts from state and federal agencies, and independent biologists with proven knowledge of wide-ranging wildlife. The experts were asked to use their professional and personal experience in the field (knowledge of related scientific studies and their own field research) to identify important areas of wildlife connectivity ("linkages" - defined as as a specific area through which wildlife tend to [...]

Purpose

American Wildlands initiated the Priority Linkage Assessment to identify, catalog and prioritize the threats to, and opportunities for, maintaining connectivity in the U.S. Northern Rockies. This dataset shows the most important wildlife linkages needed for maintaining regional connectivity as identified by wildlife biologists.

Rights

American Wildlands asks that the this data be used only for the purpose for which is was intended - to identify important wildlife linkages in the U.S. Northern Rockies. The data is limited to the scale at which experts indentified the linkages. AWL takes no responsibility for misuse of the data or errors in the data as this is a replication of what was given to AWL by interviewed experts.
