NCCARF Fact Sheets – Wildlife corridors and climate change adaptation

The Adaptation Research Network for Terrestrial Biodiversity is one of eight research networks administered by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF). It is hosted by James Cook University in Townsville, north Queensland.

NCCARF are producing a series of information sheets covering different areas of climate change and the environment.

Information sheet number 6 in this series is titled ‘Wildlife Corridors and Climate Change Adaptation’ and Environment Institute member Andrew Lowe was involved in helping to produce it.
The info sheet covers:

  • What are biodiversity corridors?
  • Corridors and climate change
  • Corridor types, design and size
  • Implications for managers and decision-makers

Downlad a PDF of this information sheet to find out more.

Other information sheets in this series can be downloaded from the NCCARF website.

    Thank you for this timely resource. Right now communities are opposing downgrading of rezoning of the last wildlife corridor between the Royal National Park (first or second national park in the world depending on who you talk to!) and the large connecting bushlands of the Northern Illawarra Escarpment. This will effectively cut off the movement of the park’s extensive wildlife biodiversity in an area of high fire risk. The communities would be extremely grateful to anyone and everyone who thinks that this is important and can take the time to inform the Wollongong Council on the consequences of this downgrade to patchwork zoning on the biodiversity of our national heritage listed park. Submissons are due on October 4 and you can get information and submission assistance (there are 30 separate ones but made easy through these sites). Go to – put your wonderful work into action before its too late.
