SOURCE  

Description

Road ecology is the study of the interactions between the environment and roads. The Ontario Road Ecology Group (OREG) is a not-for-profit conservation program dedicated to protecting wildlife from the threats of roads; primarily due to habitat loss & fragmentation, and direct mortality caused by wildlife/vehicle collisions. OREG works with government and non-government transportation planners, scientists, educators and organizations to protect biodiversity from the threats of roads through data collection, policy and public engagement.
