Saving otters from cars

Crossing otters sign

This traffic sign, in nature reserve De Weerribben in the Netherlands, warns motorists: ‘Otter crossing‘.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Otters will get safer crossings

Today, 20:17

The government will improve the protection of otters soon. These rare animals are often killed. The government promises to address immediately the seven crossings where this happens most often, along with the provincial authorities of Friesland and Overijssel. At fourteen other places the animals should be able to cross a lot safer in mid-2017.
