Roadkill tracking

The Road Kill Tracking app would be a fantastic tool to have on hand if you find yourself wandering California's roads without a meal (kidding).

The application, created by researchers at the University of California, Davis, will allow you to report road kills in the hopes that it will provide data to guide policies that might reduce their frequency. Right now volunteers report kills via a website, but the app is under development and on the way to market.
