Animal Overpass

Ok, maybe too much time stuck on a tiny Pacific Island, I don't know?
We had no idea what these were.
As we were zooming under these road overpasses on our weekend adventure to the Ardennes,
we just weren't sure why there were trees growing all over them.

After a little research and discussion,
we found out that these animal overpasses exist in the US
as well as the UK and around Europe.
They allow animals to extend their territory typically cut up by motorways,
allowing cross herd breeding, leading to better proliferation of animals,
especially endangered species.

Wild!- to drive under trees that is!
