California Essential Habitat Connectivity Project

Statewide Map
The purpose of the California Essential Habitat Connectivity Project was to develop a habitat connectivity map and a plan to help infrastructure, land use, and conservation planners maintain and restore a connected California, while simultaneously making infrastructure planning projects more cost efficient.

The California Essential Habitat Connectivity Project was a highly-collaborative endeavor sponsored by the California Departments of Transportation (Caltrans) and Fish and Game (DFG) that developed three primary products:
  1. A statewide map depicting areas essential for habitat connectivity.
  2. A matrix summarizing biological and physical values of the Natural Landscape Blocks and Essential Connectivity Areas to inform conservation decisions.
  3. A strategic plan that outlines an approach for finer-scale analyses and local or regional connectivity plans, which are to be performed outside the scope of this statewide assessment.
