||Development of a centralized inter-agency road kill database for Montana, and incorporation of American Wildlands' results from their "Wildlife Highway Mortality and Linkage Assessment" into transportation projects in western Montana.
|Defenders of Wildlife - Florida Program
||Development of a consolidated wildlife/highway safety plan and a set of recommendations for reducing Florida panther mortality on CR 832 in Okaloacoochee Slough, through a series of workshops with local stakeholders.
|I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition
||Development of the "I-90 Wildlife Watch" interactive website and online database for citizen-based monitoring of wildlife and road kill in the I-90 corridor of Washington's Cascades. A volunteer-based survey component will assist in providing data for evaluation of wildlife crossing structure performance.
||Production of training materials and classes for the "Habitats and Highways" program, which will be provided to Vermont Agency of Transportation personnel. The program trains staff in wildlife movement, ecology, and habitat needs, in order to improve highway design for the safe passage of wildlife.
|Lewis Creek Association
||Construction of a culvert for amphibian safe passage across a stretch of the Monkton-Vergennes Road in Vermont, followed by monitoring of the crossing structure during amphibian migrations to and from their breeding habitat.
||Development of survey protocol and training materials for volunteer citizen scientists, who will report wildlife crossings and mortalities on the "Maine Audubon Wildlife Road Watch" website database. Citizen-science data will be used to identify priority habitats and locations for mitigation strategies.
|The People's Way Partnership
||Communication of the importance and conservation value of the 42 wildlife crossing structures and 16.6 miles of wildlife fencing on The People's Way (US93) as it passes through the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana. The project will conduct education and outreach to tribal members and communities near US93 via presentations, field trips, an art contest, and a website.
|Western Environmental Law Center
||Integration of TransWild Alliance member data into the transportation planning process at the project level nationwide, through cooperation with the U.S. Federal Highway Administration. This partnership will increase consideration and funding for habitat connectivity and wildlife crossings, on the state and federal level, as the surest means for species to withstand the impacts of climate change.
