June 11 Connecting Wildlife, Connecting Communities: Wildlife Corridors In PA Online Event

On June 11, the Endangered Species Coalition in Pennsylvania will host an online panel discussion-- Connecting Wildlife, Connecting Communities: Wildlife Corridors In PA-- from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
The continued fragmentation of natural spaces through roads, transmission lines, and other development is accelerating the decline of our state’s wildlife and all the things that go with it.
But we can counter this fragmentation with wildlife corridors - intentional links between natural spaces that facilitate the movement of wildlife from one habitat to another.
Wildlife corridors are a critical tool to preserve biodiversity, support outdoor recreation, and protect public health. 
Pennsylvania has the biggest forests between New York City and Denver, and we have the opportunity to step up as a conservation leader in the Mid-Atlantic.
Losing species hurts the ecosystems where we love to go hiking, birding, fishing, and hunting; it weakens the tourism and recreation industries that facilitate these activities; and it increases the likelihood of diseases in wildlife that can spread to our own communities.
This virtual event will be an opportunity for citizens, organizations, and legislators to learn more about the potential benefits of corridors in our state. 
We will be bringing together panelists to discuss perspectives ranging from conservation to wildlife-vehicle collisions, from public health to outdoor reaction.
