In this citizen science project, we use scientific methods to create an overview in Austria of where which animals are road-killed and what the reasons for this might be. With your reports we aim to identify hotspots and mitigate them together with our partners.

What does roadkill mean?

Roadkill is the term used to describe all animals killed in road traffic. The German term Wildunfall (wildlife accident) falls short as it usually only refers to larger mammals and occasionally birds. This is also reflected in official statistics - data on animals killed in road traffic are mainly collected on so-called "huntable game". Data on all other animal species - including endangered species such as amphibians - are missing.
