Habitat connectivity & accidents involving wild animals
Green bridge over a road as a habitat connectivity measure
The habitat connectivity and wildlife-vehicle collisions division deals with
- the development and implementation of specialised concepts for habitat connectivity,
- the functionality and effectiveness of corridors and (re-)connecting measures,
- the effects of landscape fragmentation,
- wildlife-vehicle collisions, guiding and barrier systems
- prevention measures, e.g. wildlife warning systems and wildlife warning reflectors, as well as
- strategies for the long-term reduction of wildlife-vehicle collisions.
The division is also responsible on behalf of the state for providing technical support for the implementation of the Wildlife Corridor Concept as part of the state-wide Biotope Network Plan.
