Sky Island Alliance Wildlife Linkages (SIA-Linkages)

In 2001, Sky Island Alliance developed a citizen science project that uses animal track and sign identification surveys to monitor at-risk wildlife linkages (animal movement corridors) throughout southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. This effort became the Wildlife Linkages Program, which aims to protect and advocate for an interconnected landscape where wildlife, based on their ecological needs, can move easily between core habitats, the Sky Island mountain ranges.
