"Designing and Implementing Ecosystem Connectivity in the Okanagan was developed as part of the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy work undertaken by the Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program. As part of the Keeping Nature in Our Future Series, this document is one of the Supporting Regional Documents. This guide strives to outline the considerations necessary to identify and undertake land use planning for wildlife corridors and ecosystem connectivity. Designing and Implementing Ecosystem Connectivity in the Okanagan is not a checklist or a definitive outline of what to do for any specific species or ecosystem. It offers a general discussion of the types of regulatory tools and opportunities to permit inclusion of connectivity areas in land use plans, land management plans and other resource management planning initiatives."
