Facilitated by Borderlands Restoration and its newly-formed habitat protection and management entity Wildlife Corridors LLC, this project will permanently protect 916 acres of the Sonoita Creek Wildlife Corridor. The corridor stretches across the only remaining tract of undeveloped habitat between Patagonia and Sonoita, Arizona. Short- and long-term goals are to restore breeding, foraging, and migratory habitat for six federally endangered, threatened and candidate species; to enable a viable combination of human habitation and recreation in designated areas adjacent to, but protective of the corridor; and to increase public awareness, support and input on enhancing and celebrating the rich biological wealth of southeastern Arizona.
