Animal Bridges Give Wildlife a Helping Hand

With roads usually comes plenty of roadkill.

One interesting way to save wildlife is by building animal bridges.

Check these out to see just how ingenious they really are:

With development comes reduced habitat for wildlife. Roads and other massive barriers are erected that keep wildlife from safely moving from place to place for food, mating or migrations. Many animals die. Motorists hitting large animals like deer die or are horribly injured every year, too.

This video shared on Facebook by David Wolfe shows the promise of animal bridges, looking at real animal bridges from rope bridges, crab ramps, turtle tunnels, actual concrete and dirt bridges for wildlife, and fish ladders in use today.

With these added animal bridges wildlife has a better chance at thriving in this modern day of development.
