New York State needs to responsibly build wildlife crossings on our parkways and highways asap!
Wildlife overpasses and underpasses are widely used in Europe and are a proven solution to the unacceptable and unnecessary problem of roadkill. As climate change forces animals to migrate, their need to cross roads will only increase and it's high time we adopt this common sense method of saving lives and reconnecting habitats. New York drivers kill over 65,000 deer annually. Please watch the video to learn more.
"The U.S. spends $8 billion a year running over wildlife. If we took that cost and quartered it, we could build 200 animal crossings a year, and the problem of roadkill would disappear within a generation." Ted Zoli, Bridge Engineer and Macarther Fellow
