With a total of 44 wildlife crossing structures (six overpasses and 38 underpasses), and 82 km of highway fencing, Banff National Park has the most wildlife crossing structures and highway enclosure fencing in a single location on the planet.

Since 1996, continuous research and monitoring of the wildlife crossing structures has contributed to improvements in subsequent phases of the Trans-Canada Highway Twinning Project. Through sound science, innovation and collaboration, Parks Canada has become a world leader in highway wildlife mitigation.
