Article abstract: In support of the MSCP Connectivity Strategic Plan, the U.S. Geological Survey performed a preliminary assessment of the potential linkages between the core conserved wildlife areas within San Diego County. In coordination with the San Diego Management and Monitoring Program (SDMMP), ten of the possible linkages were identified as priority areas and evaluated for the likelihood that focal wildlife species would be able to move from one core area to the next.
