The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) has an initiative called the Wildlife and Roads project, which needs ordinary people like you and I – to help identify roadkill hotspots on roads in South Africa.
All you need to do is
- send the EWT photographs of the road kill
- sightings of road kill can be sent via email to [email protected] or submitted via the EWT’s ‘Road Watch’ App (Android only)
- also send information on where and when each photo was taken

By contributing to this project, you will be helping to conserve South Africa’s rich natural heritage and making our roads safer for everyone. The information you send us will assist in the identification of the species that are most affected, where the main problem areas are and where mitigation is most needed. – EWT
Guidelines are provided for the photographs to ensure the species can be easily identified.
