Sometimes a protected area needs to be connected to another protected area. The connection may be very big or very small and is called a wildlife corridor.A wildlife corridor is a way of connecting two areas of wildlife habitat to each other. It means animals have a safe way to move from one area to the other.

Where will Running in the Corridors funds go?
The World Land Trust is an international conservation organisation that raises funds to protect threatened wildlife habitat. Between 1989 and 2010 we have saved over 400,000 acres, that is 1,618,744,000 square meters.
The Running in the Corridors educational resource pack highlights the current need to buy land to connect up protected areas for the benefit of wildlife. In order to explain the concept of a wildlife corridor to younger students we liken it to a school corridor.
There are 10 Running in the Corridor animals that each represent a World Land Trust project area. Students are encouraged to choose an animal and raise funds for the project it represents.
How to receive the Running in the Corridors resource pack
This pack is free to schools that intend to fundraise for a relevant project. If you are intending to raise funds for the protection of threatened wildlife habitat and you are interested in a copy of the Running in the Corridors resource pack please contact World Land Trust Education Manager Kelly Jacobs.
