US 27 highway "killing zone". Click to see a much larger version.

US Highway 27 causeway looking south along stretch where temporary fences are installed. Ninety-eight percent of turtles that attempt to cross this 4-lane highway are killed. The fences attempt to divert turtles to an under-highway culvert. Arrows indicate approximate position of temporary fences but overgrown vegetation makes them difficult to see in this photograph.
