The critical need for conserving landscape linkages first came to the forefront of conservation thinking in California in November 2000, when a statewide interagency workshop was convened at the San Diego Zoo. Entitled "Missing Linkages: Restoring Connectivity to the California Landscape" the workshop brought together over 200 land managers, conservationists, and biologists to discuss and map critical and at-risk habitat linkages throughout the state. A total of 232 linkages were identified statewide.
