When roads and railways are built in the middle of forests and areas of environmental preservation; How to ensure the safety and health of wild animals in the region? Well the solution is to build bridges to ensure that animals including humans can cross safely.
Known by experts as ecoducts, these bridges are equipped with the same vegetation as the rest area to mimic the environment of the region and allow the life of insects, birds and many other animals. This type of construction is present in countries such as Germany, Argentina, Switzerland, the United States and Canada, the most famous is called Natuurbrug Zanderij Cariloo, located in the Netherlands, and has more than 800 meters long, this structure passes over a road, a railway, a river and a sports complex.
