en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wildlife_crossing

Wildlife crossings are structures that allow animals to cross human-made barriers safely.

Wildlife crossings may include: underpass tunnels or wildlife tunnels, viaducts and overpasses or green bridges (mainly for large or herd-type animals); amphibian tunnels; fish ladders; canopy bridges (especially for monkeys and squirrels), tunnels and culverts (for small mammals such as otters, hedgehogs and badgers) and green roofs (for butterflies and birds).

Wildlife crossings are a practice in habitat conservation, allowing connections or reconnections between habitats, combating habitat fragmentation.

They also assist in avoiding collisions between vehicles and animals, which in addition to killing or injuring wildlife may cause injury to humans and property damage.
