Austrian pocket guide for roadkilled animals

We need your help!

Again and again we hear from new participants in the project that it is often very difficult to determine the found animals accurately. Now there are also very experienced participants in the project, who help to identify the animals with comments under the entries. At this point a big thank you for that.

We would like to summarize and publish this great knowledge about roadkilled animals in Austria, which has been collected over the years in the project, in a handy pocketbook (or which format is suitable for our participants), so that it is even easier to get into the project.

Since we do most of the Roadkill project in our free time, we have to help each other. We have therefore decided to declare a challenge as part of the European Researchers Night:
How can you participate? What is the goal of the challenge?

The goal of our challenge is to create a handy pocket guide for easy identification of the most frequently roadkilled animals. This should make it easier for newcomers to enter the project.
We are looking for people who can help us with the following tasks:

  • Creation of the texts.
  • Provision of photographic material.
  • Graphical preparation of the guide.
  • Help in preparation for printing.
  • Performing the printing.

Anyone who can help us with any of these tasks is very welcome and can contact us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. The cooperation will be carried out through workshops in Vienna, but also online, so that participation from all over Austria will be possible.

The challenge must be completed by September 28, 2018 in order to present the results at the European Researchers Night in Vienna.

We are looking forward to your help, because it won't work without it!
