Cumnock Town Hall’s citizen science project continues to gather information on roadkill hotspots to form an action plan to protect our precious wildlife from road users.

Over the last few years, the project says there appears to be more incidents of roadkill on roads around our towns and villages.

Changing climate and land use is bringing wildlife closer to where people live.

Spotting a deer in your garden, a cheeky fox running across the street or an otter splashing about the river can be exhilarating.

The project also aims to highlight the importance of living in harmony with nature to our wellbeing and how the outdoors has never been more important.

To monitor the level of roadkill and to develop plans to minimise the incidents, East Ayrshire Leisure Trust, East Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Roads Alliance have developed a citizen science project to encourage everyone to report roadkill.

To access the survey, you can find it by going to the Cumnock Town Hall Facebook page.
