Wildlife Friendly Fencing 

Host: Maurizo Valerio

Interns removed barbed wire fencing from the Valerio Ranch. Barbed wire is harmful to wildlife. Species are unable to freely travel from different locations without the risk of being caught on a barbed-wire fence. Eliminating bared wire improves the livelihoods of wildlife and bolsters forest ecosystems. nterns replace barbed wire fencing with a wooden fence made from poles from condemned trees. The wooden fence eliminates the risk of harm to the wildlife animals. The spacing dimensions of the fence were created so deer could safely jump over. There is enough spacing below for the fawn to crawl under.
