Remove roadkill regularly to reduce kill rate of predators/scavengers
Overall effectiveness category No evidence found (no assessment)
Number of studies: 0
Background information and definitions
Animals killed on roads provide a food source for scavengers and some predators. These scavengers and predators then become vulnerable to being killed in collisions with vehicles themselves. Removing carcasses of road-killed animals thus removes a source of attraction towards roads for these species.
