I have posted a new conservation article on my website. The article is called What Are Wildlife Corridors and Crossings and Why Are They Important to Virginia. I have been working with Virginia Safe Wildlife Corridors Collaborate and Wild Virginia regarding wildlife habitat connectivity. I am planning to write other articles on the topic of wildlife crossings and corridors in the future. Click here for article.
Conservation Article Summary
Collisions with animals are compelling and devastating experiences. It is a
problem and occurrence that can be avoided if the right measures are put in
place. This article is the first in a series of articles I plan to write regarding Virginia
wildlife corridors and crossings. Through interfacing with the Virginia Safe Wildlife
Corridor Collaborative and Wild Virginia, I have brought together information to
bring awareness and to educate the reader about the issue of wildlife and vehicle
collisions and explain why it is important to find solutions to help limit or lower
these collisions. For instance, State Farm states Virginia drivers in 2021-2022 have
a 1 in 75 likelihood of colliding with animals. Virginia ranks 15th in states with
highest rate of vehicle-animal collisions for 2021-2022.
Hope you will read this article and let me know what you think. Also, check out my previous blog post about my conservation projects.
Thank you for reading my Field Notes Blog, and I hope you will share this post with others.
Let’s protect our wildlife and nature!
All the very best,
