An effort to improve landscape connectivity in Massachusetts

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Massachusetts Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program, and the Vernal Pool Association have launched a long-term and multifaceted effort to minimize the impact of the existing road network on rare and nongame wildlife, while improving highway safety.

This website represents an important strategic component: to gather information on the locations of wildlife roadkill hotspots. Help contribute data, and read more about our proactive efforts to protect rare wildlife, via the links below.
