  • So we replicated this process throughout the 14 linkage planning areas. This map shows the overlap of the species least cost corridors. We conducted landscape permeability analyses for 11 of the 66 selected focal species, including mountain lion, bobcat, American badger, San Joaquin kit fox, ringtail, black bear, black-tailed deer, Tule elk, western gray squirrel, wrentit, and California quail. The number of species this analysis was conducted for ranged from three to nine species across the priority linkages.
