It's hard to say how many animals are killed by vehicles around the world every year, but it's estimated that up to one million are killed every day on the roads of the US alone. As you can see from the list below however, some countries go to great lengths to ensure the safety of their wildlife.

The first animal bridges were built in France in the 1950s, and the longest in the world, called the Natuurbrug Zanderij Crailoo, can be found in the Netherlands and is over half a mile long! Scroll through this list, compiled by Bored Panda, to see some of the best animal crossings on the planet. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

    FYI: This bridge was designed for the endangered Squirel Glider, not cockatoos. Cockatoos can fly - even in Australia!

    I always thought these were overgrown overpasses that were out of use. Weird.

    Finally someone comes up with an idea that would safe the lives of animals plus the human beings that collide with the animals on the road, some people might see these bridges as a waste of time and money but in long run LIVES are saved all around, 🙏☺️
