While exact values aren’t conclusive Mr. Englefield, who is completing a PhD at the University of Sydney, believes there could be anywhere between 4 and 8 million native and introduced species killed on and beside out Australian roads.

The Tasmanian/English-expat and animal behavioural scientist is working diligently to provide solutions for mammals, marsupials and reptiles alike and avoid them being crushed or flattened on the bitumen. They include cutting back grass from the curb, static and live warning fences and bridges located in high frequency animal activity areas.
