In so many ways, humans have altered or destroyed countless areas where animal species live or migrate. Migrations patters have been especially disrupted, as cities, towns, roads, highways and other kinds of human development have fractured migration corridors. Recently in Montana, volunteers played a big role in restoring a migration path for the antelope who roam big sky country. The volunteers have been stringing antelope-friendly fence, a project which has gone on for the past four years and included the modification of 18 miles of fence. These volunteer efforts may go a long way toward protecting the antelope and keeping the population in that area healthy and thriving.

The fence building and modification is a project of the National Parks Conservation Association.
