I think this is a good summation of this article, some observations we would do well to follow.

“Moving animals is inefficient, costly and stressful for the animals. There is also no guarantee that the animals will mate,” Sharma said. “And building manmade corridors is very expensive and logistically challenging. Since we now know that the existing corridors play such a vital role in long-term survival, the best way to enable their success is to take a landscape-scale approach to conservation and protect the corridors from further damage.”
