Moreton Bay Region contains hundreds of kilometres of habitat corridors. As wildlife move through these corridors, they encounter roads and land use change which present safety risks and challenges to habitat access. Unfortunately, vehicle crashes involving wildlife are common in Moreton Bay region and affect human safety, property and wildlife. Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Green Infrastructure Network Program constructs wildlife crossing infrastructure to improve public safety by reducing the risk of collisions between wildlife and motorists, and to provide native wildlife with safe crossing opportunities as they move through the region’s habitat corridors. The Green Infrastructure Network program also delivers tree and habitat planting to enhance and re-establish canopy connections.
