Higher Perspectives brings to attention forested overpasses are being built in Canada that allow animals to safely cross dangerous highways.

In the United States, animals struck by vehicles on our roadways account for around $8 billion in damages every year. Canada has a novel idea: create animal overpasses to help the animals safely cross major thoroughfares without being injured or killed. What’s great is that a recent study proved that these overpasses actually work! The animals are happily using them.
