Dutch otters use wildlife crossings daily


This 17 February 2015 video is about otters, which use wildlife tunnels in Overijssel province daily; and about other animals using the tunnels.

Translated from ARCADIS in the Netherlands today:

ARCADIS has monitored during the past year the operation of sixty fauna crossings in the province of Overijssel. These are small fauna tunnels, walk ledges under bridges and large wildlife viaducts. Using camera traps all animals which last fall made use of the passages were recorded. The images of wildlife crossings along the N334 and the N762 motorways show how otters use the tunnels daily to avoid the dangerous roads. …

The images of last autumn’s monitoring show that some twenty species use the passages. We have seen roe deer, badgers, otters, pine martens and other small mammals and amphibians.
