Wildlife Tunnels

Following lobbying and recommendations by the group and researchers from James Cook University the Department of Main Roads and Ergon Energy integrated four road underpasses in the major upgrade of East Evelyn Rd. (Gentle Annie) which runs past the Millaa Millaa lookout.

Scientific monitoring established that already a wide range of rainforest animals have adapted to move through the tunnels, successfully avoiding crossing the high traffic road.
