Vital Ground Story-Map Focuses on Connectivity

      The Vital Ground Foundation’s One Landscape Initiative comes alive through a new story-map on the Foundation’s website that captures the vision, goals, and progress of the One Landscape campaign.

     The One Landscape Initiative calls for a conservation focus on 188,000 acres of private land that link the region’s wild strongholds.  

     Created by Vital Ground student intern Jasmin López, the impressive multimedia story-map feature includes video clips from Bob Landis Wildlife Films and Eric Ian’s short film “One Landscape”, as well as project maps and photos, statistics underlying Vital Ground’s science-driven conservation strategy, and a new interactive map showing how connecting One Landscape lands provides climate change resilience for a myriad wildlife species.
