Maine Audubon "Wildlife Road Watch"

Maine Audubon recently launched their "Wildlife Road Watch" program. With the help of volunteers, including runners, walkers, cyclists, and drivers, they are collecting information about where wildlife attempt to cross roads, what animals are involved, and on what kinds of roads collisions are frequent.

Maine Audubon scientists will use the data to improve our collective understanding of where wildlife attempt to cross roads and what we can do to reduce road-kill and increase safety for people and wildlife.

Signing up is easy at http://www.wildlifecrossing.net/maine/doc/adopt_road_introduction. Volunteers will receive a bumper sticker that will identify them as Wildlife Road Watch participants.

Somerset Woods Trustees supports this program and is encouraging folks to sign up and help with this effort.
