Wildlife Road Watch


The Maine Audubon Wildlife Road Watch is a web-based map and database designed to record your observations of road-side and road-killed wildlife.

Information about where wildlife attempt to cross roads, what animals are involved, on what kinds of roads are collisions frequent, and other data can help inform policy, management, and financial investment in reducing road-kill and habitat fragmentation.

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.

There are four ways to participate:

  1. Submit Random Roadside Observations (Statewide)
  2. Adopt a Road – pick your own route! (Statewide)
  3. Look for Endangered Species (Southern Maine)
  4. Adopt a Road (Western Maine mountains)
