The installation wildlife exclusion fence is used to direct and protect migratory special status animal species from construction project areas, roads, or any area where human activity has potential to harm or harass the species. Wildlife exclusion fencing is an effective tool in directing species out and away from your project.
Areas outside of the Exclusion fencing should always be considered as sensitive as the species may be present and migrating or moving along and from the fence. Through the use of exit cones built within the fence, species are allowed to escape from the construction site.
It is essential to know the requirements of your permit, not all exclusion fences are alike. Specifications are species driven and it takes good management, monitoring and controls to ensure species longevity and permit compliance.
