Friends For Wildlife – Dr. Patricia Tallman
Dr. Patricia Tallman is attempting to convince the Township of Langley to build wildlife corridors in order to help to reduce the killing of wildlife on roads due to development in Willoughby, a suburb of Langley.
She wrote a ‘Road Kill Report’ and made a presentation to Langley Township Council in early October of 2011 and motion was passed to have Township staff review the recommendations in the report and come up with a possible implementation plan
Tallman is concerned that wildlife such as squirrels, mice, birds, rabbits, opossums and other animals are being killed by cars and trucks as development encroaches on their natural habitat.
Tallman’s research was compiled into a report which notes that there appears to be no policy requiring a development blend into the natural ecological features that it is replacing.
the B.C. Wildlife Act prohibits tree cutting during nesting season if there are nestlings or fledglings.
She is hoping that developers, tradesmen and contractors can be convinced to reduce their speed approaching job sites in the morning and is hoping Township staff can come up with a roadkill monitoring program in order to track wildlife fatalities on Langley roads.
