Part 1: Transportation has made a significant impact on wildlife.

Patricia Cramer, Ph.D., is an independent wildlife scholar who works to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions while promoting wildlife connectivity across landscapes. These efforts also help reduce motorist fatalities and injuries from collisions with wild animals. She shares her knowledge with both wildlife professionals and engineers. Her research projects include two for the National Cooperative Highway Transportation Program (NCHRP), and 10 departments of transportation.

Patricia worked as a research assistant professor at Utah State University. Her work there and today focuses on researching wildlife crossing structures with results that help Departments of Transportation develop the most cost-effective wildlife crossing structure designs. She also works with DOT's and wildlife agencies to help integrate wildlife concerns into the transportation planning process across the U.S.

Patricia earned her Ph.D. from the University of Florida in Wildlife Conservation, a Master's Degree from Montana State University in Wildlife Ecology, and undergraduate degree in wildlife from State University of New York College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry.
