About Ontario Road Ecology Group (OREG)

The Ontario Road Ecology Group (OREG) is a not-for-profit conservation organization that formed in 2009 to ensure wildlife thrives in the face of an ever-growing road network. New roads eliminate habitat for wildlife, create barriers for safe movement and result in the death of many animals from wildlife/vehicle collisions.

OREG achieves its goals by working closely with a diverse membership that includes government and non-government transportation planners, developers, scientists, educators and organizations dedicated to resolving road ecology issues through data collection, policy and public engagement.
