Celebrate Wildlife Crossing Week Online 

As part of its successful P-22 Presents series, The National Wildlife Federation’s #SaveLACougars campaign is launching “Wildlife Crossing Week” – a set of live and interactive online presentations featuring experts from all over the world that have dedicated themselves to studying the science, design and construction of wildlife crossings. The series is being hosted in collaboration with Animal Road Crossing (ARC Solutions), an interdisciplinary partnership that facilitates new thinking, methods, materials and solutions for wildlife crossing structures across North America.

Conversations—live on P-22’s Facebook Page, and then available to watch any time—will be led by Beth Pratt, California Regional Executive Director and leader of the #SaveLACougars campaign for the National Wildlife Federation. The projects that will be featured include an overpass in Wyoming to preserve a 6,000-year-old pronghorn migration route, a series of structures in Banff National Park in Canada, that have been used more than 200,000 times by grizzly bears, cougars, wolves, moose, and more, an underpass in Vermont designed for frogs and salamanders.

“Our team is proud to be part of the Liberty Wildlife Corridor Partners and the broad coalition working to build the largest wildlife crossing in the world in the Los Angeles area, which will become a world-class model for urban wildlife conservation,” Pratt said. This series is an opportunity for us to engage and inspire new audiences by giving them direct access to the talented experts shaping conservation projects around the world and hear their reflections on the landmark effort here in California.”
