Elk Cows and Calf - Vail Pass, CO; June 15, 2008 — 7:37 AM
This image was captured by a motion-triggered camera as part of a wildlife
monitoring project along Interstate 70 in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Center for Native Ecosystems’ I-70 Safe Passages Project ensures that wildlife can move safely throughout the landscape to meet their daily and seasonal needs. In partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation, we work to transform I-70, the ‘Berlin Wall for wildlife in the Southern Rockies,’ into a system of crossing structures that allow wildlife to access important habitat on both sides of the interstate. In doing so, we aim to make this busy mountain highway safer for human travelers, too.
Center for Native Ecosystems protects, connects, and restores our treasured Rocky Mountain landscape. Learn more at www.NativeEcosystems.org
