Ross with lizard
Ross Curtis safely moves a Blue-tongued lizard across the highway near Shark Bay, Western Australia.
Australian native animals use both the road and verge environment as transport corridors and as an easy resource for scavenging. Unfortunately the indiscriminate, contemporary predator of this environment, the car or truck, can place vulnerable species or populations on the verge of extinction.
