Roads and road traffic threaten populations of many species of animals, and vehicle-wildlife collisions have an enormous cost in property damage, human injuries and deaths, and harm to wildlife and pets. In this course, you will learn about how roads affect animals, how planners predict where and when the risk is highest, and what engineers have designed to protect animals and motorists.
