Road Watch on Facebook

article image Road Watch in the Pass is now on Facebook! Check them out here. Like them and share them!

Their focus is:
  1. To collect, analyze, and communicate information focused on Hwy #3 wildlife crossing locations, based on local knowledge and science, to assist with mitigating wildlife vehicle collisions (WVC's). The public can report wildlife sightings (alive or dead) along or on Hwy #3 and the adjacent railway tracks in the Crowsnest Pass Area of Alberta. Sightings can also be entered on the Road Watch in the Pass Website mapping tool at: http://www.rockies.ca/roadwatch/index.php and

  2. To mobilize and facilitate local community and public support to implement effective wildlife crossing methods on Hwy # 3 in an effort to both mitigate WVC's and to restore wildlife connectivity.

The Road Watch in the Pass Facebook page is a great place to share concerns and ideas about Highway #3 wildlife crossing needs to help both wildlife and people to be safe, and it is a great place to learn about the concept of Road Ecology. Your postings, pics, and videos are welcome! Photo credit: Loretta Schaufele
