OGCC is pleased to announce the release of the ground breaking Roadkill Tracker!
Help protect BC's wildlife by tracking roadkill.
So What Exactly is this?
Ever been involved in a collision with wildlife and not known who to contact? Or have you ever passed roadkill and wondered what to do? Now you can help report roadkill to the Maintenance Contractor responsible for your location so that they can attend the scene. Just click and the notification is sent! At the same time the data is collected and analyzed to help better define wildlife corridors and reduce animal mortality!
Ok...So how does it work?
It's simple. Open the app, select the species, and click submit. The rest is all handled automatically.
Using your GPS location, the app determines the maintenance contractor. You select the species from the drop down list, and then enter the highway name (if you want to...GPS kinda tells the whole story). Then hit submit. Two things happen: first, an email is sent to the maintenance contractor responsible for that area, detailing the location and species; second, the information is sent to the database where it is collected, verified and vetted, and then passed to the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation. With a couple clicks you are helping to ensure speedy cleanup of the road and defining areas where wildlife are being struck by vehicles.
Please note that no personal information is collected at any time. At all. Period.
Alright, but if I'm helping the government why does the app cost 99 cents?
Good question. Part of it is because we have bills to pay here at OGCC. But check out our website to see what your purchase is going towards! You won't be disappointed!
Download it now and start reporting! Be a hero!
