Save People Save Wildlife is a Non-Profit organization that was formed in late 2015. We are a group of concerned neighbors and citizens, who are constantly facing danger to both human, and wildlife, in a 9 mile corridor along I-80 that stretches between Parley's Summit, approaching the Park City exit, all the way to Highway 40. In this "killing zone" - we are seeing approximately 2 deaths each week, and these are Moose, Elk, Deer, and even a Cougar. 

This stretch of highway is extremely dangerous - so many millions of visitors and truckers drive 80 MPH during poorly lit conditions, not realizing that by the time they see a 1,600lb. Moose on the road, it is much too late. 

In February of 2016, a young woman was driving Westbound on Highway 80 - she struck and killed a Moose - and nearly lost her own life. Read the story HERE

In order to save our citizens and visitors, we are asking UDOT to immediately install fencing, and over / underpasses. They have conceded that this is needed - however the funding is not currently available. We have now received a commitment that the larger project will start in June of 2017. In the meantime, we will continue to see our wildlife slaughtered on the highway - and more horrific accidents, like what occurred in February of this year - if we don't minimally, install fencing along this dangerous and vulnerable stretch of I-80.

We have been given approval by UDOT to pursue the installation of wildlife fencing, along both sides of this dangerous stretch - but it will require funding to the tune of $100,000.00  UDOT has agreed to provide $50,000.00 in funding - if Save People Save Wildlife can match that. This means we must immediately  fundraise, in order to match the remaining $50,000.00

If just 500 people pledged $100 to this cause - we would be done, and our fencing would be installed before the snow flies.

Please share this with everyone you know. Please donate. We all know what risk it is to drive that stretch of the highway during dusk and dawn - but our visitors do not. We hope that it will not take a loss of human life, to finally force the State of Utah to protect us, and our citizens.

Wow folks - what an outpouring of support! It is with sincere gratitude that all of us at Save People Save Wildlife would like to extend our deepest thanks to each one of you, who have donated, shared, and supported this incredible cause. Fencing posts have been installed in over 3,211 feet (59% milestone!) and fencing has been installed at close to 2,900 feet or (53% milestone!). Rest assured, crews are working hard - and we are blessed with glorious weather conditions, that are helping us make great progress. With other donations (besides GoFundMe) we are less than $2,000.00 short of our initial $50k commitment to UDOT. Thank you everyone!
