for the Western Wildlife Corridor Project  
This grant funds the Western Environmental Law Center (WELC) to evaluate, create and share new policies, plans and implementing projects that protect landscape connectivity and wildlife corridors in the West. WELC plans to work in conjunction with the Center for Large Landscape Conservation on this project. WELC intends to secure federal and state commitments to protect 3-5 new wildlife corridors and new commitments from federal land management agencies to include wildlife corridors in land plans. Ensuring connectivity between large ecosystems is an important part of our strategy to provide wildlife with the best opportunity to adapt to a changing climate.
