Log Culvert Crossings

dP Log fauna crossingCulverts are typically square, rectangular or half-circle in shape and may be purpose built for fauna passage or water drainage, or a combination of both. They are typically pre-cast concrete cells or arches made of steel.    By definition, culverts were originally used to carry water.   However, culverts are becoming popular as fauna passage ways to assist our fauna species from crossing highways and roads.   They are also known as underpasses.

In Australia various fauna species have been recorded utilizing culverts for movement. Research has been undertaken into identifying the attributes of fauna culverts and how we can make them favourable to different fauna species.   ‘Furniture’ has been installed in standard culverts to enhance their function as fauna passages.

Culverts or dedicated fauna tunnels are often used and can be made wider to cater for a greater variety of fauna species.  The use of ‘furniture’ such as rocks, logs, ropes and Fauna Log Culvert Crossingledges and appropriate planting at entrances have been shown to facilitate the movement of some species.

We specialize in log fauna culvert crossings which appear to be a very suitable fauna crossing for Koalas and various other species.
