Wildlands Network’s former Landscape Conservationist, Maggie Ernest Johnson, wrote about our growing road ecology efforts in this article, republished in The Delaware Valley Eagle Alliance’s online Nature Newsletter. Maggie detailed our efforts to mitigate wildlife-vehicle collisions across a number of major highways in North America. Maggie’s article was originally published on Inside Ecology.
At Wildlands Network, we focus on mitigation strategies that not only make roads safer for life—both wild and human—but also help reconnect wildlands fragmented by extensive road systems. These mitigation strategies are proven to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions, sometimes up to 80-90%, improve landscape connectivity, and save lives and money.
