Roadkill Across America
Title Image While bicycling across the United States, we recorded the roadkill that we observed.

This project is not intended to disturb the audience, or to blame drivers. It encourages the viewer to consider the extent and sadness of the problem, and it suggests ways of addressing it. While bicycling past these animals, we felt no indignation at the cars going too fast to notice them. Rather, we felt disturbed that we had never fully realized the dangers of highways to wildlife, and we wanted to help raise awareness about the problem.

You can reduce your personal impact by driving less and driving safely, especially in wild areas. Additionally, you can support programs and legislation that incorporate wildlife planning into highway construction to promote a healthier coexistence between our roads and nature. See Defenders of Wildlife's Habitat and Highways campaign for more information.
