Re: E-M:/ Wounded turtles

Enviro-Mich message from Mary J Hosley <mjhosley@juno.com>

It sure would be nice to demand wildlife tunnels where useful with road
projects.

Does anyone have any technical information on wildlife tunnels for
turtles?  I thought I had read someplace that the tunnel must have light.
 I haven't found any technical information (light requirements, suggested
material, ease of configuring one, etc.) and I'm working on whether a
wildlife tunnel would work for Eastern box turtles due to a road project
in my area.

Thanks.
