CHANJ offers a blueprint for strategic habitat conservation that includes:
- A statewide analysis depicting areas crucial for habitat connectivity (which we call “cores” and “corridors”), and
- A menu of implementation actions for securing, restoring, and/or reconnecting habitats within those key areas.
These products are intended to help land-use managers, conservationists, and transportation planners to work in a more proactive and collaborative way that reduces conflicts, saves time and money, and ultimately improves the long-term prospects for NJ’s terrestrial wildlife. These products may also be useful in pinpointing areas for wildlife habitat mitigation work.
