Wildlife and Roads: About Us

This site is the result of the work of many individuals. There is a core of 10 ecologists, engineers, and a webmaster that have made this site possible. These people in turn have worked with others who have assisted with this research. Our sponsoring organization, NCHRP of the National Academies oversees a panel of reviewers for this project as well. If you have further questions or comments concerning this project, please contact Dr. John Bissonette. For specific questions related to this site and project, we provide contact information on the 9 team members.
