The Problem

Every day animals are harmed by vehicles on the road. Even the biggest animals can be killed or harmed. Some populations of animals are going down and they can become endangered. We love animals and want to help them move around their habitats more safely.

Our Plan

There are certain places where wild animals cross the road to find water or food or places to hide or find mates or give birth or hatch their eggs. If people know about these places on the road, they can slow down their cars and keep the animals safe. We will find these places and put colorful signs to remind people to slow down and share the road with wild animal friends. Their lives matter!
