The Berkshire Wildlife Linkage Partnership works to protect and conserve the forested habitat corridor of the Berkshire and Taconic Highlands of Western Massachusetts, which links the Green Mountains in Vermont to the Hudson Highlands in New York and beyond.

The organization spans the Taconic Mountain region through Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and Vermont.
