How can people help?
Take care while driving at night and slow down between dusk and dawn.
Report sightings of road-killed Tasmanian wildlife on the new roadkill reporter app:
If you do not have access to a smartphone or tablet you can report roadkill observations via our online report form
Who can get involved?
Anyone who is using Tasmanian roads can help by reporting any Tasmanian Wildlife roadkill that they see.
What is the most important thing to remember?
Safety first! Never put yourself or others in danger when collecting roadkill information. Never touch roadkill with bare hands.
What time of the day does most roadkill happen?
Most native Tasmanian animals, including Tasmanian devils, are nocturnal, so they are most likely to be hit on the roads between dusk and dawn.
What mitigation strategies are being used?
Several mitigation strategies are currently used around Tasmania including signs, roadside vegetation slashing, light coloured bitumen, rumble strips and virtual fencing. Often a number of mitigation strategies will be used together but depending on a number of factors (type of roadside vegetation, volume of traffic, speed of traffic, camber/undulation/windiness of the road) different types of mitigation are more likely to be effective.
