- the ecological bridge requirement for bridge roads was introduced: the Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs, 3, which was under construction in Istanbul. launched work for wild animals that may be affected by the bridge. 3. ecological bridges will be built to ensure the passage of wild animals during the contact path of the bridge.
Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs, 3. the contact path of the bridge brought an "ecological bridge" condition for wild animals.

Istanbul 3. Thanks to the 6 bridges, which will be made to ensure the continuity of wild animals and the passage of wild animals to the contact roads of the bridge, the life areas of wild animals will also be defended.
The sample project came to life in Mersin
The Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs implemented an exemplary bridge in Mersin with the intent of preventing the separation of wildlife and contributing to biodiversity. The General Directorate of Forestry (OGM), which renewed the bridge established on the highway connecting Gülek Strait and the Mediterranean through Central Anatolia, in cooperation with the regional directorate of highways, has implemented the existing bridge as the “Forest Ecosystem Bridge”.
The densities of wildlife populations will be determined
The General Directorate of Nature Defense and National Parks and the General Directorate of Forestry and Water Affairs and the General Directorate of Forestry have started to identify the densities of wildlife populations and hence mobility. The areas where ecological bridges are to be built on the route route and those bridges need to be made are reported to the General Directorate of Highways. Following the completion of the works, the construction of ecological bridges will begin.
Wild animal traffic accidents will be prevented
Constructing ecological structures such as overpasses, underpasses, which are suitable for roads that lead to the impoverishment of genetic resources and which open the door to the breakdown of forest areas, will contribute to biodiversity. Besides, the roads passing through the wildlife areas of life are causing traffic accidents and causing loss of life and property. The project will prevent traffic accidents caused by wild animals. Ecological bridges are planned to be implemented in other highway projects that will be implemented next.
