Wildlife crossing in Netherlands

wildlifebridge

This wildlife bridge (ecoduct) provides a safe crossing path for wildlife amidst the danger of highways.

The first wildlife bridges were constructed in France during the 1950s. European countries including the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, and France have been using various crossing structures to reduce the conflict between wildlife and roads for several decades and use a variety of overpasses and underpasses to protect and reestablish wildlife such as: amphibians, badgers, ungulates, invertebrates, and other small mammals.

Location: Highway A50, Netherlands.
