Keeping it Simple: Easy Ways to Help Wildlife Along Roads and Bridges

"Keeping it simple" is more than a concept. It's a commitment. It means using simple solutions when simple solutions will work. It involves going beyond "compliance" to identify easy ways of helping fish and wildlife. It means doing the right thing just because it's the right thing to do and because one has an opportunity to do it. "Doing simple things for wildlife when we get the chance is common sense," says Mary Peters, FHWA Administrator. "Something as simple as installing a peregrine falcon box can make tremendous difference." This website highlights more than 100 simple, successful activities from all 50 states and from FHWA's Western Federal Lands Division. All these activities are "easy." Most are low- or no-cost. All benefit fish and wildlife or their habitat. "Keeping it simple" is more than a concept. It's a commitment. It means using simple solutions when simple solutions will work.
