#🐾 Unfortunately we don't have crossing guards everywhere for the animals. We need more animal Bridges and Crossings. Those are structures that allow animals to safely cross human-made barriers like highways.
According to Defenders of Wildlife there are 750,000 to 1.5 million animals hit by vehicles in the USA every year and costs the United States $8 Billion a year.
The first wildlife crossings were constructed in France during the 1950s. European countries including the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, and France have been using various crossing structures to reduce the conflict between wildlife and roads for several decades.
Wildlife crossings are becoming increasingly common in Canada and the United States. Recognizable wildlife crossings are found in Banff National Park in Alberta, where vegetated overpasses provide safe passage over the Trans-Canada Highway for bears, moose, deer, wolves, elk, and many other species. In the United States, thousands of wildlife crossings have been built in the past 30 years, including culverts, bridges, and overpasses. These have been used to protect Mountain Goats in Montana, Spotted Salamanders in Massachusetts, Bighorn Sheep in Colorado, Desert Tortoises in California, and endangered Florida Panthers in Florida
Right after this I am posting some of the most beautiful animal crossings in the world. I hope you hit my page and check it out.
