Making Roads Safer for Wildlife and People with GPS Elk Collars

Since fitting 3 elk with GPS collars 8 months ago near Great Smoky Mountains National Park, we’ve collared 4 more elk and are continuing to monitor their movements across nearby roadways to potentially reduce dangerous wildlife-vehicle collisions. We’ll use the data from the GPS collars to recommend the best places for wildlife crossings on roadways surrounding the park, protecting both wildlife and people. Photo: Wildlands Network

Wildlands Network Hosts Trail Camera Workshop to Make Mexico’s Highway 2 Safer

Several species that call the borderlands region home face an almost insurmountable threat: Mexico’s Highway 2 has taken thousands of lives, both human and animal. With wildlife crossings, we can reduce the risk of wildlife-vehicle collisions and potentially save lives, putting us one step closer to a reconnected and rewilded North America.
