For which of the following species has the use of habitat corridors been proposed as an important conservation tool?

sea otters

bay checkerspot butterflies

Florida panthers

whooping cranes

Eastern hemlocks

Summary Introduction

Introduction:

Habitat corridors are also known as wildlife corridors and green corridors. These are the areas of habitat that connect the wildlife population separated due human activities. The habitat corridors allow the exchange of individuals between the wildlife populations and prevent the negative effects of reduced genetic diversity and inbreeding.

Explanation

Justification for the correct answer:

Option (c) states that ‘the use of habitat corridors has been proposed as an important conservation tool for the Florida Panthers.’ The landscape or habitat corridors are used for the conservation of Florida Panthers. They are critically endangered and inhabit the Western states of the United States. They die because of the accidents while crossing roads. The protected landscape corridors are used for the safe movement between the conservation areas. Hence, option (c) is correct.

Justification for the incorrect answers:

Option (a) states that ‘the habitat corridors are used for the conservation of the sea otters.’ Their number decreased as a consequence of commercial hunting. Their population is conserved by reintroducing them into different regions and not by building habitat corridors. So, it is an incorrect option...
