Forum 2012

Connectivity Conservation and Corridors

Connecting Environment, People and Production

The Forum commenced with Ian Pulsford providing a broad overview of the importance of connectivity conservation for sustainable landscapes and some key elements in the landscape that provide connectivity. He showed several examples of major connectivity corridors being developed overseas and in Australia, and outlined the key planning features for corridor/connectivity projects to be successful.

Three speakers then presented case studies or discussed corridors from the following perspectives:

  • Rod Mason—Aboriginal/cultural aspects
  • Veronica Doerr—biodiversity aspects
  • Jeremy Wilson—primary production aspects.

The speakers had been asked to address four questions:

  • What is a corridor?
  • Why are corridors (and connectivity) important?
  • When and where are corridors needed?
  • What makes corridors effective in achieving and/or maintaining their values?
