California to build largest wildlife crossing in world

A mountain lion known as P-22, photographed in the Griffith Park area near downtown Los Angeles. Hoping to fend off the extinction of mountain lions and other species that require room to roam, California is building a mostly privately funded wildlife crossing over U.S. Highway 101 in Agoura, Calif. It will give big cats, coyotes, deer, snakes and other creatures a safe route to open space and better access to food and potential mates. The span will be the only animal overpass in a state where tunnels are more common.
Beth Pratt, California director for the National Wildlife Federation, stands on a hilltop overlooking U.S. Highway 101, near the site of a proposed wildlife crossing in Agoura Hills, Calif. Pratt is advocating for a wildlife crossing to go over the 101 freeway and connecting open space preserves, hoping for wildlife to have wider roaming spaces. The project is on track for groundbreaking within two years and completion by 2023.
