Collisions with automobiles claim the lives of incalculable numbers of animals every year, especially in areas where roads cut across the nature habitats of numerous species.
Since humans aren’t exactly likely to cede our roads to the animal kingdom any time soon (as much as some of us would be okay with that), we have to come up with other solutions. Wildlife crossings built to allow land-based creatures to pass safely from one side of the road to another make a huge difference for all sorts of species, and they’re beautiful, too.
