Wildlife crashes – an epidemic?
Submission Date: 2019
This paper summarizes a Workshop held by the ACT Chapter of the Australasian College of Road Safety in July 2019 on the rising level of injuries involving wildlife in the ACT and Region. The workshop brought together a wide range of stakeholders to better understand the growing risk from these crashes; to identify the likely interventions to best reduce the risks; and to connect the people involved so that future work will be better integrated. The workshop was an eye-opener for participants. The issue is growing in complexity and impact; effective interventions are not obvious or easy; and there are many stakeholders involved.
