This week’s guest is Marcel Huijser. Marcel is a road ecologist with the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University. He studies the interaction between wildlife and transportation infrastructure, something anyone who’s spent time on Montana’s roads has likely thought about. In this conversation, Justin asks Marcel about the impacts of transportation on wild ecosystems and how big a problem some of those impacts actually are. Justin ponders what the best places are to put traffic mitigation implements, and Marcel gives some examples of great works of mitigation. Check out some of Marcel’s wildlife photography here: https://www.marcelhuijserphotography.com/ Transcription here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Cok6cI-Em3b42zHqMdAfopiv3Pfb0BjQftlh1JdQpCk/edit
