In this inaugural message, I want to open discussion about whether/when/how habitat corridors/links are effective.I am aware of 4 habitat corridor strategies in Victoria:
- City of Boroondara Habitat Corridors Strategy
- City of Maroondah Habitat Corridors Strategy
- City of Banyule Habitat Corridors Plan
- Glenelg Hopkins Habitat Network Strategy.
I was involved as part of a team preparing the Boroondara and Maroondah strategies, but ultimately the question arises how wide should the corridor be?For me the first question to answer is for what species is the corridor intended, but even if we have the answer to that question there doesn't seem to be the info about to even start to answer the width question.
