The terrible toll of wildlife-vehicle collisions – and what we can do about it

Pronghorn crossing a road: Studies show wildlife overpasses and underpasses could reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions by 90%. (Tom Koerner/US Fish and Wildlife Service) Most people might be surprised to learn that the combined distance of paved roads in the United States could encircle the Earth more than 160 times. While these roads and highways are essential …
