Highway Barriers to wildlife movement
Lewison Lab post-doctoral researcher, Megan Jennings, has been working to evaluate wildlife movement across State Route 67, a rural highway in San Diego County that has proven to be dangerous to people and wildlife. The California Department of Transportation, CalTrans, has been working to make the highway safer, and we're helping them study how to do that for wildlife. Check out this video to see Megan discuss our CalTrans-funded research to assess wildlife movement across the highway and identify safe and appropriate road crossings.

This is really cool research. I hope the state of California pays attention and starts to design its road infrastructure with wildlife in mind.
