Safe Passages

Beginning in 2005, we began funding to support the “Safe Passages” and “Corridors of Life” programs to address the negative impacts of major highways on wildlife movements and improve habitat connectivity within key wildlife corridors in the U.S. Northern Rockies. This work has helped to make “road ecology” a major new conservation initiative, influencing national and state policies concerning the design, alignment and retrofitting of transportation systems to protect biodiversity and habitat connectivity.
