Re-integrate fragmented wildlife habitat by overpasses and underpasses


Major highways and especially interstate freeways are fragmenters of wildlife habit, decimaters of home-ranges, and barriers to natural migration. An interstate freeway through grizzly bear habitat, for example, constitutes a “grizzly dam”, which could more than half the population. The creation of wildlife corridors can weave a shredded fabric back together again.

  1. I love this so much and the kindness of letting wildlife cross safely. I think of where I live and how every homes here do not like wildlife especially deer so every houses have fences around except mine and I have apple trees (2) so they come to eat the apples and enjoy the free and loving yard but I also have to fear for their lives not only from the bowhunting psychopaths but the roads for there is hardly any clearance expect 2 areas near the ferry where once the car gets off them drive like bat out of hell. That is when I saw one deer get hit in front of my eyes it was the such a horrible sight to see this beautiful deer flying to the air landed on the ground with 3 broken leg and internal injuries. Lucky I was there to cover his eyes and comfort him till the wildlife rescue came to put him down. We need more compassionate approach and be able to co-exist with wildlife for this was their home first. That is what makes me so angry, THIS WAS THEIR HOME FIRST!
