The Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife - Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program, and the University of Massachusetts have launched a long-term effort to strategically minimize the negative effects of the existing road network on rare and nongame wildlife, while improving highway safety.
This website represents an important strategic component: to gather information on the locations of wildlife roadkill hotspots. As a citizen, you can help by contributing data or volunteering to survey road segments. Or, feel free to read more about our proactive efforts to protect rare wildlife.
