A wildlife corridor is designed to allow animals to pass through an artificial obstacle such as a road, railway track or a dam.
The design of wildlife corridors differs depending on the species being addressed. Corridors for amphibians are small tunnels under roads (toad or amphibian crossings), others, for migratory fish, are artificial torrents (fishway), and, finally, planted pathways allow small and large wild animals to cross motorways.
The purpose of these wildlife corridors is to re-establish the connectivity of an ecological continuum by restoring biological corridors and ecological corridors.
This wildlife corridor was designed as an embankment that the road passes through. The anti-noise barriers shown here are intended to reduce disturbances produced by road traffic. © F. Lamiot
