Tanzanian study says education, better signing could reduce animal vehicle collisions
Animal vehicle collisions (AVCs) take an incredible toll on wildlife worldwide. In the United States, for example, as many as 1.5 million deer, moose, and other ungulates are annually involved in vehicle crashes, with all yearly U.S. wildlife collisions costing $1 billion and causing 29,000 human injuries.

To protect natural ecosystems, some conservationists advocate 'land sparing,' in which farmers intensify agricultural practices to boost yields, theoretically enabling them to forgo expansion into natural areas. Others advocate 'land sharing,' in which farmers take over more land but use more environmentally friendly practices. Researchers studied the relative effects of the two approaches on biodiversity.
