Reducing Road and Rail Kill in the Y2Y Region

Research in the Y2Y region shows that highways with high traffic volumes need to be fenced and bridged to prevent roadkill, and to allow wild animals safe passage to either side. Many highways in the Y2Y region exceed this threshold, but effective mitigation in these areas is still uncommon.

Wherever fencing and crossing structures have been built, amazing results have been achieved. Y2Y continues to work with partners to advance these efforts. Click here to learn more.
