In Maine, we are lucky to have many large and small patches of valuable habitat for wildlife. Conserving these habitat pieces is vital to ensuring that wildlife populations in the state remain healthy–but so is protecting the connections between them.

Beginning with Habitat’s Map #3–Habitat Blocks and Habitat Connections–has new information about where the best habitat connections are in each town. Maine Audubon’s newly published fact sheet Conserving Maine’s Wildlife Habitat Connections accompanies the map and is now available to download.
