National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA)

West Virginia ranks as the top state for Wildlife Vehicle Collisions (WVC), meaning that drivers in the state have a 1 in 37 chance of being involved in an animal collision. These collisions are dangerous to drivers, including national park visitors, and are deadly to people and animals, in addition to burdening drivers with economic strain. NPCA is hoping to partner with GEC to help advance advocacy for investing in safe wildlife crossing within and surrounding national parks to connect animal habitats and reduce WVC in West Virginia.
