Freedom to Roam

Founded by Patagonia in 2007, Freedom to Roam is a self supporting coalition of business, government, and conservation groups working together to conserve wildlife corridors across North America.

Its goal is to create, restore and protect wildways or corridors between habitats so animals can survive. Join us in this fight to help animals survive in a warming world.

Over the first three years of its work, Freedom to Roam identified and mapped 400 corridors in Freedom to Roam’s Corridor Commons program and engaged over 1,200 citizen naturalists in its Witness for Wildlife initiative. The first ocelot discovered in southern Arizona (the first ever recorded in the state) was photographed by a camera trap set by the Sky Island Alliance through Witness for Wildlife.

You can learn more about Freedom to Roam’s current work by going to The science is clear and our options limited. Corridors are essential to help animals adapt to climate change. We hope you will partner with us and continue to support the Freedom to Roam Coalition and their Witness for Wildlife program.
