Ever wonder what those bridges are for on alligator alley??🤔
Well they are highways for the animals to cross safely from north to south ⬆️⬇️. Wildlife crossings are used all around the country. And they definitely work ✔️this is our trail cam under the bridge. Unbelievable how many animals use it. 😁link to video in bio 👆🏻
🔴Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) took aggressive measures to protect the official state animal from dangerous freeway crossings, installing 24 highway underpasses, building 12 wildlife bridges, and installing continuous fencing along a 40-mile stretch of Interstate 75. And it's worked, in areas that have both fencing and nearby crossings—not a single panther has died since 2007. What's more, the underpasses are now routinely used by bobcats, deer, and raccoons—all of which have seen drastic declines in roadkill since the crossings' installations.
