Ekodukt Wildlife Crossing

Sweden is a country where many a good idea actually get realized to the benefit of humans as well as wildlife. Like building wildlife crossings (sv. ekodukt) under or over roads. Ten Swedish ekodukts are in use and the result is not only less traffic accidents between vehicles and animals but a rather quick development of important reconnections of natural habitats where the road used to serve as a dead end separating one part from the other.
