Spaces we share with the wild

One of the leading causes of wildlife fatalities are collisions with vehicles.  It turns out that many species will use river and stream culverts as a means of safe passage under roads. Installing intentional animal passages or corridors can dramatically decrease the amount of human-caused wildlife fatalities. 


In some places, including Canada, there are wildlife bridges under and over roads and highways. These "crossings" are constructed solely for the safe passage of animals; and there are studies to prove that it is working...Bannff National park in Canada has a great series of videos featuring trail cameras that were installed on these wildlife bridges. You can check out their efforts here: Banff National Park: Wildlife Crossings
