Wildlife and roadways don't mix well—for anyone involved. WildlifeXing is a program that adds contributions not just from official conservation organizations but from everyday people as well.

WildlifeXing is a citizen-science tool helping us address wildlife-transportation conflicts. The program includes the use of smartphone technology and on-line mapping tools to engage our communities in scientific inquiry and data collection. Anyone can use the WildlifeXing app to collect data and help identify hot spots for mitigation opportunities along roadways. We also provide connectivity curriculum for high school students to learn about this ecological phenomenon and localize it to their specific landscape. Publicly-sourced data will help to inform strategies for mitigating wildlife-vehicle collisions and improve ecological connectivity, which has benefits to both wildlife and human safety.
