Synopsis

A road traverses through a forest to give communities access to the city. A transmission line carries electricity to towns and villages. A dam regulates water supply to growing townships. These infrastructures are the foundation of the modern society and are necessary to ensure economic growth and social welfare. However, they can also have adverse impacts on our wildlife and are often perceived as contributors to the decline of the natural environment. In Malaysia, there is a growing awareness on the need to integrate wildlife crossings and other mitigation measures in the planning of development projects to ensure these projects are carried out sustainably to protect sensitive habitat and enable free movement of wildlife.
