Read Mexico Program Director Juan Carlos Bravo’s interview in Huffington Post about the Sonora Congress’s exhortation to the federal government to build wildlife crossings on roads. The Congress issued the exhortation in response to the killing of a black bear on Mexico’s Highway 2. The bear was struck and killed by a vehicle, illustrating the need for wildlife crossings to mitigate such tragedies.
“We celebrate the decision of the Sonora Congress to require the SCT to mitigate the impact that federal highway 2 has on black bears and other species in the region,” said Juan Carlos Bravo, director of the WN Mexico Program (Wildlands Network).
