FALMOUTH — Maine Audubon is seeking volunteers to survey roads in Maine for signs of animal crossings.

According to a press release from the organization, the information collected by volunteers about where different animals attempt to cross roads can help identify ways to reduce road-kill and increase safety for people and wildlife.

Maine Audubon’s “Wildlife Road Watch” is a web-based map and database designed to record observations of road-side and road-killed wildlife. Volunteers can participate by submitting roadside observations on the Wildlife Road Watch website.
