For the love of bees and bats

How can the fragmented landscape of a city be healed using bio-corridors that connect people and habitats through enhanced and restored ecosystem services? Increasingly biodiversity corridors – including pollinator paths – are used to provide places for wildlife to thrive, improve water quality and create open green spaces.

We have a massive opportunity in New Zealand towns and cities to include more green infrastructure – that’s not as easy to do in other places in the world. With more thoughtful management of amenity green space and the installation of more urban greening features such as green roofs or living walls, we can create ecological networks at a finer grain throughout the city.
