IUCN CONNECTIVITY CONSERVATION GUIDELINES RELEASED
GER welcomed the recent publication of IUCN’s Guidelines for Conserving Connectivity through Ecological Networks and Corridors. Several years in the making, the guidelines were developed by a specialist group of more than 100 managers and practitioners from 30 countries, including several of the Great Eastern Ranges’ Directors. The aim was to establish definitions for connectivity conservation practice and to highlight applications at a global level. GER sees the release of the new guidelines, and the critical need to build back better post the pandemic, as a prime opportunity to reinvigorate Australia’s world-leading strategy for preserving and connecting habitat at the continental scale – the National Wildlife Corridors Plan.
