New Study Provides Missing Data on Fencing Impacts on Wildlife Movement
“We simply don’t have maps for fences in the way we do for roads or buildings. And this is a huge limitation for wildlife ecology given the extent of fencing on the landscape and the rapid pace of habitat change occurring across the globe. High-quality data can help landowners and resource managers prioritize conversions to wildlife-friendlier fence designs to ensure wildlife can continue their migrations into the future." -Simon Buzzard, senior coordinator for Wildlife Connectivity at the National Wildlife Federation
