This case study takes a closer look at Moose-vehicle collisions in the state of Vermont, where one third of all reported moose-vehicle collisions result in motorist injury or fatality.
Roads have direct and indirect ecological impacts on wildlife, and vehicle collisions are one of the top impacts with regard to birds. Current available mortality estimates for birds are derived from one study, which prompted a literature review of 20 mortality rates extracted from 13 studies, which generated 4 separate estimates along with uncertainty from the different datasets.
Wildlife-vehicle collisions seem to be increasing over the last few decades in both the United States and Canada. This publication calculates the overall cost of the average collision, and reviewed the cost of collision mitigation measures to calculate the overall cost-benefit and where the break-even point is to start gaining benefits.
In order to understand obstacles to securing garbage from bears at the municipal levels, authors conducted semi-structured interviews of local government administrations and waste service providers.

In cases where physical removal of alligators in human-dominated landscapes is not viable, conservation education programs provide a more realistic strategy to address this issue. This paper presents an examination of two education approaches: a classroom-based program and a field excursion.
This research experiments with possible intervention exercises to decrease fear of bears in people who live in brown bear areas.
