Welcome to GLOBAL Roadkill

Because roadkill is a global problem, we are collaborating with organizations globally to record roadkill observations as both evidence of a species occurrence and of wildlife-vehicle conflict. The Road Ecology Center is an academic-science entity, but we believe that collecting data about conservation issues like his is a critical service we can provide. We have spent 8 years developing and operating the California Roadkill Observation System, the 2nd largest system of its kind in the world (Belgium just keeps staying in front of us). We are using that experience to help at the global level and we appreciate your contributions to this important conservation concern.
