Banff Wildlife Crossings Project: Integrating Science and Education in Restoring Population Connectivity Across Transportation Corridors

The Banff Wildlife Crossings Project's (BWCP’s) monitoring and wildlife research, coupled with outreach and education, aims to properly inform the transportation community and wildlife managers of the environmental and societal benefits of Banff’s highway infrastructure investments. In addition, the Project seeks to share its findings on wildlife crossing design elements, requirements and their effectiveness. The BWCP goal is to increase transportation and wildlife agency understanding and community awareness so that other busy roads in the mountain parks and other locales in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the United States benefit from the findings of the BWCP. This will allow other communities to develop sustainable transportation practices that provide ecological connectivity for wildlife across their transportation corridors as well as maintain motorist safety.
