Fascinating Bridges for Animals Around The World

You need to know that in this world, bridges aren’t only made for human, but also for animals. Some animals  migrate in a group to another place. During their migration, a lot of animals can be killed by vehicles, because some highways are built in the middle of a national park or forest. The bridges,also known as ecoducts, help them to cross the roads safely.

It’s good to know many countries are already aware of  this matter and build these bridges to ensure the safety of the wildlife. In the 1950s, the first animals bridges were built in France. Now you can find many bridges around the world that save  thousands  of animals every year. The bridges can be underpass tunnels, amphibian, or green roofs. It depends on the type of animals that will pass through it. The longest one is Natuurbrug Zanderij Crailoo which located in Netherlands. It is over half a mile long.
