A number of motion-sensing animal detection cameras and animal tracking beds have been installed to monitor wildlife use of selected wildlife crossing structures. From these initial monitoring efforts, biologists are finding that numerous species are using the crossing structures, and some individual animals are using them as regular travel corridors within their home ranges. Part of the success of wildlife crossing structures comes from animals having a sense of security while approaching or crossing through the structures. Increased public presence or use of the crossing structures could lead to some individuals or perhaps an entire species avoiding the crossing structures thus not using them for safe passage across the highway. We appreciate your enthusiasm, but please avoid entering the wildlife crossing structures.
