Brief Project Description: We are developing a Terrestrial Organism Passage Screening Tool that managers can use to identify transportation structures important for wildlife passage across roadways in Vermont. A main component of the project involves using electrical circuit theory to model wildlife movement across the landscape. We will identify areas critical to wildlife movement statewide, as well as at each individual road structure managed by the Vermont Agency of Transportation. Structures will then be ranked according to their connectivity value for multiple wildlife species. This project is a collaboration between VTrans, The Nature Conservancy, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, and University of Vermont.
