SUSTAINABLE WILDLIFE ESCAPE RAMPS
Fauna Support supplies and installs wildlife escape ramps of a high-quality and durable material wherever municipalities and other water managers want to ensure animal-friendly sheet piling. Together with the water manager, we can check the situation on site and provide advice on the placement of wildlife escape ramps. With this, Fauna Support helps the water managers to meet their moral (and legal) duty of care and conservation with regard to the local fauna.
The following Dutch municipalities already use the services of Fauna Support:
Almere, Amstelveen, Amsterdam, Binnenmaas, Blaricum, Eemnes, Giethoorn, Joure, Leidschendam-Voorburg, Molenlanden, Nijmegen, Schiphol, Sluis, Teylingen, Hoogheemraadschap Stichtse Rijnlanden en Het Geldersch Landschap & Kasteelen.
“The wildlife escape ramp is an excellent aid for fauna that have fallen into the water or are only in the water temporarily. Especially in spring, many young and weakened animals die slowly because they cannot get out of the water due to artificial bank protection, such as sheet piling. In the context of the General duty of care, To protect and save wildlife, placing wildlife escape ramps is an environmentally friendly option.”
