Welcome to the project!

Keeping tabs on dead animals helps protect living ones! The Mianus River Gorge needs your help mapping roadkill to help us find "hotspots" of wildlife mortality in Westchester, NY and Fairfield, CT Counties. Recording roadkill observations allows researchers to determine the causes of roadkill and reduce future incidents. With the help of citizen scientists, roadkill can be decreased and prevented!

Not only does roadkill decrease local animal populations, billions of dollars are spent each year on repairing vehicle damages, making roadkill an ecological and financial drain.

This project is focused primarily in the Mianus River Watershed (Bedford, Pound Ridge, North Castle, Greenwich, and Stamford) but we will map any submissions in Westchester and Fairfield Counties.

We prefer photographs to assist in species recognition -- please be careful when taking pictures on roadways. Safety and following the law come first.
