A non-profit organization to raise funds to improve interstate safety for all who travel here.
OUR IMMEDIATE GOALS
1. Raise $50,000 for wildlife fencing (UDOT will match this with $50k).
2. Have UDOT replace the existing right of way fencing with wildlife fencing.
3. Continue to work with UDOT for the ultimate goal of at least one wildlife bridge across I-80 to facilitate animal migrations.
4. Set a timeline for planning, fundraising, implementation of wildlife bridge(s) and corridors so wildlife and people can coexist.
