Research and Monitoring
Banff National Park and its environs represent one of the best testing sites for innovative roadway mitigation - wildlife passages in the world. Dr. Tony Clevenger has studied the performance of the Parks Canada mitigation measures that were designed to reduce fragmentation of wildlife habitat. The Banff research is recognized by transportation, wildlife and land management agencies as a leading source of information for the field of road ecology, providing science-based guidance for resolving highway-wildlife conflicts throughout North America and abroad.
