Animals and highways don’t mix.

Roads make dangerous crossings and also isolate wild species from the habitats and resources they need to survive.

But wildlife corridors allow animals to safely traverse the road.

In Utah, for example, more than 50 structures cross over and under roads to help tortoises, deer, and other creatures cross unharmed.
