Road Ecology blog: No tresspassing sign and wildlife cameras at wildlife overpass, Hwy 69, Ontario, Canada.

Human co-use is generally associated with reduced wildlife use of crossing structures. However, if the structure is located in a multifunctional landscape and if the target species are not particularly sensitive to human disturbance, consider combining non-motorized human and wildlife use. The cameras record wildlife that uses the ecoduct to get to the other side of the road.
