With the increase in the population in the world, natural areas opening to settlement and transportation divide the continuity of wildlife and cause the ecological balance to deteriorate. This poses a great threat to living creatures in nature.
Ecological bridges and wildlife passages save thousands of animals every year
It is difficult to say how many animals were killed every year around the world due to vehicles, but only one million animals are estimated to die every day on the US roads.
However, some countries are working hard to ensure the safety of their wildlife and are designing their habitats to cover animals.
In these countries, ecological bridges and wildlife crossings, which save thousands of animals, are built every year to ensure the continuity of the wildlife without disturbing the balance.
The first animal bridges or wildlife gates were built in France in the 1950s, and the longest ecological bridge in the world called Natuurbrug Zanderij Crailoo is in the Netherlands and 800 meters long!
