The ability for individuals to travel between subpopulations is the key to genetic diversity as well as ultimately the survival of the species. This study examines the effectiveness of a variety of under-road passage structures for a community of animals in an urban wetland at a location which includes a bridge, two box culverts and eleven round concrete culverts to facilitate wildlife passage as well as a mammal fence atop an amphibian/reptile wall. Our results indicate that large and medium mammals overall did not use passages less than would be expected based on their local movement in habitats.< Less
