People kill more wildlife with their cars than in any other way. But we can help cut the number of animals who die on roads and highways.


Millions of wild animals are struck down by vehicles each week in the U.S. The suffering and death of every cardinal, skunk, and deer is horrible to think about. And on a larger scale, there are some wild populations that can’t survive the loss of individuals.

We’ve got good news: Society is making great strides to help wild animals cope with roads in their habitats. Elongated bridges, overpasses and underpasses, and even culverts—combined with fencing that guides animals to them—offer the best hope for reducing the carnage.

You can help. Start by slowing down at dusk and dawn, and give wildlife a brake.
