DescriptionRoads have several negative effects on large mammals including restricting movements, isolating populations, and mortality due to vehicle collisions. Where large mammals regularly cross roads, driver safety is also a concern. Wildlife road crossing structures are often proposed to mitigate the negative effects on wildlife and human safety. However, few studies have compared the efficacy of different methods in identifying wildlife road crossing and mitigation locations.
