Help identify the dangerous road sections for wildlife or other causes of death with the free smartphone tracking application ...
According to the German insurers' association, more than 240,000 deer, wild boar, red and fallow deer died on the streets of Germany in 2013.
Thanks to the dedicated hunters, you have a good overview of how many deer, deer and wild boar leave their lives on the streets.
In all other wild animals, such as hare, hedgehogs, martens or birds of prey, very little is known.
Especially the latter are often victims of road traffic in the winter months. Here it is necessary to close knowledge gaps.
The Tierfund cadastre should remedy the situation, which went online in late 2011 as a reintroduction cadastre and allows everyone to collect and report dead wildlife.
The system is not only used to detect accidents involving game. Even rare species or species that have insufficient data due to their difficult comprehensibility can now be recorded and documented by anyone.
With the app you can now also Mobil detected the wild accidents or victims of road traffic, wind turbines, fences, etc. and report. The locality is transmitted to the portal https://www.tierfund-kataster.de.
The results are then evaluated in order to determine the endangerment of wild animals, to identify priority areas for wildlife accidents and to be able to initiate appropriate protective measures.
In order to participate in the Tierfund Cadastre, you need a GPS-enabled device and you have to register first.
This registration is free.
