The participation in the project Roadkill is designed in such a way that both the first steps in the project and the participation are as easy as possible. You only need a username and password to register and you can enter your data via apps for iOS and Android smartphones or simply via your internet browser. Our website and apps are developed by Spotteron. If you already have an user account in a Spotteron app, you can also use it in our online entry form or in the apps.

How to participate exactly?

In advance of using our Spotteron App, you have to register or login. As described above, we only need a username, email and password for registration or your existing Spotteron account. If you are on the road and find a dead animal, which was killed by a vehicle, just report it via App or online form. You can do this right at the location or you make yourself a note and report at home using your desktop computer.

However, always pay attention to your own safety! Do not add any spots while you are at the wheel. Do not take a photo on unclear road sections. Always pay attention to road traffic and do not risk anything to enter a new spot! Your safety always comes first!

How can I avoid Roadkills?

Even now you can do a lot to avoid road kills. For example, it is a widespread misconception that amphibians survive by taking them "between the tires" with your car. Velocities over 30 km / h can already lead to the death of the amphibians, due to the vacuum under the car their lungs can burst.

If you want to be more active in the protection of frogs, toads, newts etc. on the road, you are sure to find an association near you which is working with amphibian protection fences along the roads and looks forward to your help. Contact your local museum to find out more about these associations.

Most road-kills with game animals happen during twilight, drive very carefully here and pay more attention to the edges of the road. The signs "Deer crossing" show particularly vulnerable spots and should be taken seriously, even if you have never seen a game there.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the developers of Spotteron for the easy to use and reliable apps and the website.
