TAC has released a new publication on practices to protect Canada’s roadside habitats and the species that live in them. During this webinar, the report’s authors will highlight the terrestrial ecological issues affecting rural and urban road systems across Canada, and some emerging solutions to challenges such as wildlife-vehicle collisions, restoration of connective habitats, management of pollinator habitats, naturalization of rights-of-way, and permafrost warming.
