Vermont is very important to animals such as bear, moose and bobcat. These animals need large, undeveloped areas to survive. Vermont’s forests and mountains link wildlife habitat between New York, New England, and Canada.
Climate change, invasive species, roads, and development are all threats. Many people are working hard to protect wildlife corridors—or undeveloped, natural landscapes—so these animals can survive, and thrive.
Join us as we explore these corridors and the threats facing animals. We’ll take a closer look at the Shutesville Hill Wildlife Corridor in Waterbury and Stowe. Hundreds of acres have been conserved there in the last two years.
This free webinar is perfect for those interested in learning more about wildlife and conservation.
Presenters: Kim Royar, biologist for VT Fish and Wildlife Department and Furbearer Project Leader Bob Heiser, regional director at the Vermont Land Trust
