In El Sol de Hermosillo, a newspaper from Sonora, Mexico, Mexico Program Director Juan Carlos Bravo celebrates Sonora Congress’s exhortation to Mexico’s federal transportation committee to build wildlife crossings. The Congress issued the exhortation in response to the killing of a black bear on Mexico’s Highway 2. The tragic death of the bear, who was struck by a vehicle, shows the need for wildlife crossings to mitigate the harm to both human and non-human travelers alike.
“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, who is director of the WN Mexico Program.
