An article summarizing results of Marcel Huijser and team’s research on fencing around wildlife crossing structures in western Montana was recently featured on the Conservation Corridor website. “Effectiveness of fencing around wildlife crossings depends on location and length” highlights different management approaches and recommendations that would decrease wildlife-vehicle collisions and provide safe passage of large mammals. Conservation Corridor is an east coast non-profit whose mission is to bridge the science and practice of corridors in the landscape as a conservation strategy.
