Man-made Animal Bridges and Crossings
The mission of this group is to seek out any man-made animal bridges and crossings that aid various wildlife in getting from point A to point B. We are particularly looking for earth bridges over highways and roads, bodies of water, as well as tunnels and corridors under highways and roads.
Expanded Description:
Animals Need Infrastructure Too

Highways are dangerous barriers for all sorts of wildlife. Around the world, bridges and tunnels just for animals make it easier for them to migrate, mate, eat, and survive.

Man-made Animal Bridges and Crossings provide a safe passage across dangerous highways, restricted waterways, urban and other inhabited areas. Some could include: crossings for crabs, salamanders, rodents, penguins, alligators, reptiles, amphibians, elephants, domestic animals such as cattle and horses, and a wide range of wildlife such as: buffalo, wolves, deer, moose, elk, bears, panthers, lions, and endangered species.

Man-made Animal Bridges and Crossings will accept only currently active man-made structures that provide a safe and unimpeded crossing for any type of animal species, amphibians or reptiles. These structures could include: bridges, suspension rope bridges, tunnels, channels, climbing walls or other similar man-made structures.

Excluded are multi-use man-made structures that are used for animals and humans. Example: pedestrian trails and/or bridges which may allow any type of human transportation.

Excluded are animal crossings that are in any place of business. Examples: zoos, petting zoos, wildlife or aquatic parks, aquariums and others. These include admittance that require a paid admission or are free.

Proximity limitation for multiple animal crossings: If two or more crossings are less than 1/10 (.1) mile apart the group is to be posted as one waymark. If any two crossings are greater than 1/10 of a mile apart, they are to be posted separately. Equivalency: 1/10 (.1) mile = 528 feet or 161 meters.
