THE STORY:

The Nature Conservancy wrote -

The Idaho Chapter of the Nature Conservancy is seeking funding for an innovative wildlife detection system that uses Doppler radar, thermal cameras and wireless technology to help save the lives of humans and wildlife.

Your donation will help cover the cost of one mobile unit, one warning signal and a 4-month testing period.

Over the past 10 years vehicle-wildlife accidents have increased in Idaho's Boundary County — the system's test area — killing over 300 animals on average EACH year, injuring dozens of people and killing two.

The accident area is also an important thoroughfare for several of Idaho's rare species traveling between the Cabinet-Yaak and Selkirk Mountains.

GIVE TO THIS PROJECT NOW AND YOUR DONATION WILL HAVE TWICE THE IMPACT. YOUR DONATION WILL MATCH A GRANT FROM THE NATIONAL FISH AND WILDLIFE FOUNDATION.

Through this project, the Conservancy and its partners introduced a new mobile detection system in 2014.  Relying on Doppler radar, thermal cameras and wireless technology, the system uses flashing lights to warn drivers to slow down when an animal is in the middle of or alongside the road.

Give Wildlife a Brake aims to reduce collisions by at least 50 percent in the McArthur Lake Safety Corridor.

Project collaborators: Kootenai Valley Resource Initiative, Idaho Transportation Department, Idaho Department of Fish & Game, Sloan Security Systems, Yellowstone to Yukon Initiative, TransCanada, Farm Bureau Insurance.
