Roads are a common cause of death for wildlife species. The Adventure Scientists Wildlife Connectivity Study recruits cyclists and runners to record roadkill observations in an effort to research and reduce animal-vehicle collisions.
We Need Your Help
We are seeking adventurous individuals who pay close attention to detail, follow through on their commitments in a timely matter, and are able to regularly communicate with the Adventure Scientists team.

- Previous field data collection experience is preferred but not required.
What to Expect as a Volunteer
Cycling, walking, or running? We need you!
Volunteers use smartphones to photograph and mark GPS locations of roadkill observations during human-powered exploration of roads through any landscape. After submitting an application to participate, a volunteer must learn the recording protocols and demonstrate knowledge of them by passing an online quiz.
