blog posting

Here is an Entry for the blog. 

Here is a cool article from the Calgary Herald about Wildlife Crossings. Wildlife/human interaction has always been a problem in National Parks, both in Canada and the United States. Its inspiring to see a the Province of Alberta doing such a great job of mitigating the negative effects of Trans-Canada highway. Hopefully we will see something like this in the future for the Canada railroad. 

One thing to note that is of interest, Banff National Park is using cameras to monitor wildlife and their use of the crossings. Strangely similar to what has been done with ITS and freeway congestion monitoring? 

hope you all enjoy! 


Also here is a secondary web link to post on the blog that has to do with the wildlife photos posted by Banff National park: http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ab/banff/plan/plan1.aspx
