Woeste Hoeve wildlife crossing

A wildlife crossing is known here as an 'ecoduct', or 'wildlife viaduct', or 'wildwissel' in Dutch. We have over 65 ecoducts in our country. The photo shows the 'Wildwissel Woeste Hoeve' that crosses highway A50 in between the junctions Waterberg and Hoenderloo. Built in 1988 it was the first wildlife crossing in the Netherlands.

  5. I remember wildlife crossings along Alligator Alley - a road that runs from Ft. Lauderdale in east Florida to Naples on the west coast. These crossings were for Florida Panthers, an endangered species. I always wondered if the "wildlife" figured out the crossings were for them! Your crossings are much more elaborate...ours just went under the road. :)

  6. I don't think I've ever seen a purpose built wild life crossing before Marleen! On the country roads there are signs but no actual crossings, brilliant idea!
