The purpose of this paper is to present the impact of roads on wildlife and to evaluate the ways to
manage these impacts. Various foreign articles and studies were analyzed as well as environmental impact
studies of roads developed in Antioquia. As a result of this study it was found that the main impacts were
roadkills, population isolation, and changes in reproductive patterns. The above impacts have the overall
consequence of diminishing the populations of fauna. The management strategies to overcome these impacts
are discussed as well.
