Roadkill Survey – Bikers around the world Please help us gather the data we need!
Wildlife occur almost everywhere people do. We like them and take them for granted. However, we are also losing them at an alarming rate. Because roads criss-cross many landscapes, they provide a convenient place from which to see certain wildlife. They are also where many animals die, hit by cars or trucks. Our project collects observations of wildlife along roads (and off them too) so that we can understand where they live and are moving to. In the case of roadkill, we also want to understand what causes roadkill, which animals are affected, whether or not there are roadkill “hotspots” and what we can do to reduce roadkill impacts on wildlife. By contributing wildlife observation data, you help us to understand where wildlife live and the threats they face from (mostly) human activities.
