FALMOUTH, Maine (AP) - Maine Audubon is looking for volunteers to watch roads for signs of animal crossings to help reduce wildlife roadkill.

Animal watchers can submit their observations to Wildlife Road Watch, an Internet-based map and database used by Maine Audubon. The tool allows residents to record observations of live animals and road-killed wildlife.

Maine Audubon says the information will be used by biologists with the organization and with the state to inform policies and management decision designed to help reduce road risks to animals.

The organization says road deaths threaten to eliminate the Blanding’s turtle and spotted turtle populations in Maine.
