The article provides information on the two landscape reconnection projects in Australia. The two projects are the Gondwana Link and the Kosciusko. These two projects are aimed to provide a secure habitat corridor for flora and fauna as climate changes. Gondwana Link is primarily designed to protect, manage and restore globally important plant and animal populations in an arc of bushland. Meanwhile, Bush Heritage Australia and The Nature Conservancy are focused on reconnecting a 70 kilometer stretch of wildlife habitat between the Stirling Range and Fitzgerald River National Parks.
