Report identifies best wildlife crossings for 2 major SoCal highways

After studying wildlife use, connectivity, and protected land status, scientists have pointed to a handful of places in southern California where it would make the most sense to build wildlife crossing structures along Interstate 15 and U.S. 101 to improve safety for the animals as well as genetic diversity for the region.


The report summarizes the input from some of the world’s foremost experts on wildlife connectivity and crossing structures and combines it with landscape characteristics and wildlife data to prioritize locations for wildlife crossings. The experts evaluated locations that would improve connectivity for all kinds of wildlife, including for the imperiled mountain lion populations in the Santa Ana and Santa Monica Mountains.
