In all of the ways that urbanization has led to the destruction of wildlife, one of the ones we rarely think about is the construction of high speed roadways that separate between two sides of the same forest. Animals become trapped on one side or the other and crossing back to be with their families or to reach familiar water sources can be a death sentence. Some estimates say that more than 1 million animals die on a daily basis after being struck by motor vehicles in the United States alone!
