Our gratitude to all those who donated to this project

Unprecedented Public Support
The public support for this wildlife crossing has proven unprecedented. A total of 8,859 comments were received in response to the draft Environmental Document, with only 15 opposed. The crossing site is located in Agoura Hills, who passed a resolution supporting the project. Surrounding cities such as Malibu, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks have also passed similar declarations, and the Southern California Association of Governments, the nation's largest metropolitan planning organization, representing six counties, 191 cities and more than 18 million residents, also passed a resolution in favor of the project.
Support for this wildlife crossing also extends around the world—people around the country and across the globe have made donations to the project and taken action to urge for its completion. International media outlets such as AP News, BBC World News, Wall Street Journal, NPR, The Today Show, Marketplace, The Guardian, National Geographic, The New Yorker, CBS News, Los Angeles Times, AARP, and many more have featured the story of the crossing—the project has received over two billion media impressions globally!
