Hit and Run

I grew up in Illinois where the roads run long, flat, and straight across a vast plain of open farmland. In this setting, prairie wildlife and cars can easily avoid one another. However, when I moved to Westchester, just north of New York City, I was confronted with a different reality. As road density increases, wildlife habitats are destroyed and fragmented into smaller, more isolated plots. Animals are unable to meet their biological needs, and as a result a variety of species are now threatened with extinction. The pictures in this series document the fallen creatures along the wooded roadways of Westchester County.
