Wildlife ‘Ecoduct’ Bridges

In an effort to reduce the amount of animals hit by cars and disrupt their territories a little less, more animal bridges/ecoducts/wildlife overpasses/green bridges are being built over highways. Canada has 41 such ecoducts that have been used more than 200,000 times since 1996 by large species like bears, cougars and elk. The Netherlands, who pioneered the concept, has some 600 wildlife crossings. The World Geography has pictures of 17 of them, a few of which are reproduced below:
