2020 - Road Kill Survey

*Road kill* may be a significant cause of mortality for some animals. In certain species (e.g. the Otter) the loss of only a handful of individuals is likely to have a significant impact on local population dynamics. We are especially interested in learning whether particular species are prone to this type of mortality and also whether road kills show _seasonal_ or _geographic_ patterns. rnrnA Biology.ie SurveyrnrnThe data collected by the survey will be used to help inform strategies to protect these animals.rnrnView road kill sighting from *Biology.ie* users on the satellite map.rnrn*Please observe the following safety code when reporting a road kill animal:*rn1.
