Module 1: Introduction
IMPACTS ON WILDLIFE
Figure: An example of a WVC.
WVCs are a serious safety risk for animals. In most cases, when a vehicle hits an animal the animal dies immediately or shortly afterwards. Clearly, these deaths affect the immediate survival of many individual animals; however, they also represent a serious conservation issue.
This study identified 21 federally listed threatened or endangered animal species in the United States for which road mortality is one of the major threats to the survival of the species.
