Case Study

Rare Species Reintroduction

We worked with the engineers and biologists to design and create a low maintenance, easily-installed and effective mitigation solution on a very narrow banked wetland road in Southern Ontario. The very small road shoulder didn’t provide much room to install a secondary wildlife fence so we suggested to manufacture bespoke fencing panels to fit directly to the back of the new guardrail system and connect it to an existing culvert. After the first monitoring season biologists recorded Snapping Turtles, Painted Turtles and Musk Turtles crossing under the road safely though the newly adapted eco-passage.
