Unique initiative to collect data on wild animal kills

An app has been developed and launched to minimize roadkill of wildlife, and welcomed by conservationists. The mobile app and website, www.Roadkills.in was launched by the NGO Wildlife Conservation Trust, to record the data of deaths of various small to medium animals and birds in road and canals. The data recorded in the app can be freely accessed and shared under a creative commons licence, which will help in reducing roadkills while also help infrastructure planners and researchers during the planning of building or upgrading roads and railway lines.
