For humans, highways, large buildings and wide roads are a necessary infrastructure – for animals they are insurmountable obstacles. Many die in search of food or on hikes to their reproductive sites. Individual protected areas such as the Serengeti or the Yellowstone National Park are too small to sustain generations of healthy wild animal populations permanently. Hope is offered by the approach of "connections for species survival". The concept is to connect great wilderness shelters with tunneling systems, secured "elephant highways" and overpasses. This creates secure routes for lions, bears, antelopes and elephants across borders.
