Last week, the state of Chihuahua in Mexico amended a law to mandate wildlife crossings on all new highway projects in the state. Wildlife crossings decrease the risk of wildlife-vehicle collisions, protecting both wildlife and human travelers. Huffington Post Mexico covered the story, interviewing Juan Carlos Bravo, our Mexico Program Director.
For Juan Carlos Bravo, [Mexico Program Director] of Wildlands Network, it is an important advancement for wildlife conservation and sustainability.
“We hope that other states will follow the example of Chihuahua in the implementation of these structures for the benefit of wildlife and the safety of motorists.”
