Roads have a variety of adverse impacts on wildlife populations and can seriously impact rare species. Numerous roads are present throughout the range of the endangered San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica), and many more are planned. We review existing literature and data to assess potential impacts from roads on kit fox conservation and recovery. In addition, we discuss mitigation strategies with their potential benefits.
