ECOLOGICAL CORRIDORS AND BUFFER ZONES AS MEASURES TO RESTORE CONNECTIVITY TO THE HABITAT OF THE SINÚ PARAKEET SPECIES (PYRRHURA SUBANDINA

SUMMARY: In the present study, the design of ecological corridors and buffer zones is proposed as a measure for the expansion and restoration of habitat connectivity for the hunting species Sinú parakeet (Pyrrhura subbandina) in the center-north of the province of Cuenca del rio Sinú, located in north of Colombia. The methodology used, the result of modifications to Bentrup’s (2018) proposal, was based on the analysis of geographic parameters that define areas with the best territorial aptitude for the species’ habitat. Likewise, the study is based on a cost analysis that, through a Geographic Information System, allows defining the potential location of the functional connectors. In this way, the model provides reliable information that allows the exact layout of the corridors and the buffer zones to be proposed. As will be seen in due course, the methodology used can be adjusted for other species.
