This is why we need wildlife crossings
What do you think about adding wildlife crossings on Hwy 17, 92 and 84?
Couple snippets from the article:
"30 such passages throughout the state, with two that cross a highway..drivers and animals collided 472 times..An underpass was constructed in this area and completed in 2016. Since then remote cameras have snapped images of wildlife using the underpass including deer, raccoons, coyotes and other small animals, all taking advantage of the safer route..Animals are using the structure; we're not just moving the problem..That state's crossings, including underpasses and deer-tight fencing, have reduced deer and vehicles collisions by 85 percent."
"Federal employees who returned from the month-long partial government shutdown decided that it was probably not worth the effort to relocate the roughly 90 individuals involved. That’s because some of them were pregnant or newborns, and all of them were opportunistic elephant seals that have taken over what used to be the tourist area of Drakes Beach, Calif."
