Bridges For Animals - Wildlife Overpasses

Bridges For Animals - Wildlife Overpasses | Geography for All! | Scoop.it

Our modern society depends on greater connectivity between places.  Regionalized economies, politics and transportation networks are increasingly integrated with far-flung places now more than ever before.  Our biosphere and natural environments are exceptions to this pattern.  Wilderness areas are 'islands' in an ocean of human controlled environments.   We create transportation linkages that unite people economies and cities, but separate herds from there extended habitat. 

 

We've all seen road kill on major highways.  Species like deer, elk, and grizzly bears and other large-bodied animals need a wide range for numerous ecological reasons.  These bridges are an attempt to ameliorate some of the problems that our roads pose for the non-human species that still call Earth home.  From a purely economic standpoint, many argue that these bridges save society money given the accidents and property damage that can be avoided.

I think this would be a great idea! it would keep the animals, nature and people safe. They have protection from motor vehicles where they crash on.

I think this would be a wonderful solution from innocent animals from being killed and thousands of car accidents being prevented.
