…Another goal of Ciraco’s is to prevent wildlife-vehicle collisions that occur along Interstate 80 when moose, deer, elk and other animals cross the highway in front of fast-moving traffic. As a member of the nonprofit Save People Save Wildlife Board of Trustees, he advocates for safety measures such as the installation of cattle guards at entrance and exit ramps, fencing along the highway and overpass bridges.

Part of what makes Park City special is looking out to the back yard and seeing a moose and young calves or a deer or an elk, Ciraco said.

“We’re beginning to lose that with the number of animals that get killed and the amount of development that’s happening,” he said.
