"State And Federal Funds Fuel More Wildlife Crossings"

"Wildlife crossings are getting more go signs, on Capitol Hill and beyond.

State and federal lawmakers are steering money toward projects. National highway officials are preparing to roll out a new grant program. Companies are pitching in, governors are initiating executive orders, and a major nonprofit group that’s been honking the horn for years is drawing more attention.

“The interest and action in conserving migrating wildlife and building wildlife crossings is equally prevalent in red, blue and purple states across the country,” said Matt Skroch, with the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Portland, Ore., office."
