Road ecology blog: Mitigation measures for long-toed salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum), Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.
These salamanders migrate between their winter habitat (up slope) to their breeding habitat (Linnet Lake).
Image below: Warning sign
Image below: The long-toed salamanders were having difficulty climbing a curb. In 1993 a new curb with more gentle and roughened slopes was installed to allow the salamanders to leave the road.
Images below: Because there was still substantial road mortality of the salamanders, barriers and tunnels (underpasses) were installed in 2008.
