The installation of wildlife bridges across our nations highways would help cut the number of accidents involving wildlife, thus reducing the number of injuries to humans and wildlife and reducing property damage as well. This would, also, give wildlife management a way of easier tracking of collard wildlife and migrating herds. By installing camera traps or just cameras along these bridges, wildlife could be observed without interrupting the natural flow of their passing and wildlife management would be better able to manage their duties. No hunting should be allowed along these bridges for the obvious reason of the danger to highway traffic. This would also insure that the wildlife would be there for future generations.
Please consider the installation of wildlife bridges throughout the U.S. and Canada to cut or eliminate injuries to humans and wildlife and reduce accidents and property damage. With the installation of cameras at each crossing, this would also give wildlife management an easier way to keep track of collared wildlife or migrating herds.
