Between 2011 and 2021, Parks Canada reported 1,007 animals, coyote-sized and larger, were killed on roads in Jasper National Park. Jasper has a higher mortality rate because the main highway through the park is not twinned, fenced or equipped with wildlife overpasses, unlike Banff. And it’s not just on highways where animals are dying. Over the past decade, more than 600 animals have died on the railway in both national parks, according to Parks Canada. The tracks are not fenced and there are no wildlife overpasses.
