Across North America, wildlife corridors are found under highways. Sometimes they cross highways, but that’s usually an afterthought. However, in new developments they are often considered in the original plan.

Wildlife protection is most effective if considered in the first stage of development. Corridors are visible, wildlife destinations are obvious and known by the locals, if not obliterated by development.

Too often, after-the-fact proves fatal.

Please consider “best available” recommendations within your “protection of wildlife” plan and make Whitehorse a better example than most.

I think that’s why we’re here Ð the North is the last frontier. I’m sure, with what you already know from local and global experience, you can incorporate “best available” knowledge into your planning process and, if not, we still have time to investigate before development with the assistance of professionals in the field.
