Monitoring roadkill and wildlife mitigation measures

The Training Seminar (TS) is addressed to students, young researchers and practitioners involved in projects targeting identification of roadkill hotspots and evaluation of effectiveness of measures aiming to mitigate infrastructure’s barrier effect and wildlife mortality. It includes sessions focused on importance of monitoring road and railway mortality and effectiveness of wildlife crossings and fencing. Information provided will help to define monitoring aims and targets, and select best protocols and techniques to respond each project specific goals. Participants also will receive basic training on data analyses and associated software.

First edition of this Training Seminar was held in coordination with the IENE Conference 2020, online. The contents are updated and expanded and experts form new organisations participate in the lectures.
