A conservation corridor is a linear landscape feature that facilitates the biologically effective transport of animals between larger patches of habitat dedicated to conservation functions. Such corridors may facilitate several kinds of traffic, including frequent foraging movements, seasonal migrations, or the once-in-a-lifetime dispersal of juvenile animals. It is sometimes tempting to refer to any linear landscape element as a conservation corridor, but whether it actually functions as one depends on the corridor's capability.
