The Netherlands is home to over 600 wildlife crossings known as ecoducts. Similar ecoducts can be found in Israel on Route 6. The longest of these in Holland is Natuurbrug Zanderij Crailoo  (sand quarry nature bridge at Crailo), which spans a distance of 800 meters long and 50 meters wide  used to protect the endangered European badger, as well as populations of wild boar, red deer, and roe deer, and  spans a railway line, business park, river, roadway, and sports complex. You can see the great variety of flora which depend on the free movement of the animals for fertilization.
