Cyprus Roadkill Observation System

The Cyprus Roadkill Observation System (CyROS) is recording citizens’ and volunteers’ observations of dead wild fauna throughout the island’s road network. Data collection includes for both opportunistic wildlife observations and systematic routes along the major transportation network on the island. A free Android application has also been created to allow on the spot uploading of records on the system, via Smartphones and tablets. Data collected will be used to understand the factors which influence road kills, and the impacts of roads on fauna in general, as well as contribute to better infrastructure planning with a view to assist nature conservation objectives.
