Abstract

Roadkill is among one of the more alarming problem nowadays. This is because the winter road will disrupt our environment a little ecosystem. In this study, three objectives have been identified namely; first, this study aims to identify the number and species of animals involved in this roadkill. Then, this study aimed to mark the location of the frequent occurrence of this roadkill along the path of Jeli to Tanah Merah and from Jeli to Dabong. Finally, this study aims to propose recommendations for reducing roadkill on the road involved. GPS was used to record the coordinates of the current location of the observation of animals killed on the road. The species and classes of each carcass were identified and unidentified carcass were then categorized as unidentified animals. Unidentified animals cannot be identified because of the condition of carcasses that fully mashed. The study was done in two ways, namely in the way of main road and secondary road. Domestic animals are the most heavily involved in the future in the way main streets. The results indicated that 61 % of domestic animals were involved in roadkill meanwhile wildlife animal's recorded 39% roadkill along Jeli to Tanah Merah. Then, wildlife and domestic animals recorded 50% of roadkill each along Jeli to Dabong road. While the number of domestic animals and wildlife in the interior is the same way. The hotspot location of roadkill along Jeli to Tanah Merah also had been identified which is from Kampung Lubok Dulang to Kampung Batu Besar. Next, the hotspot location of roadkill which the major roadkill occur along Jeli to Dabong was from Kampung Relak to Kampung Rawa. In conclusion, these animals have to be protected in order to reduce the number of roadkill. Various methods can be proposed as park signage, create passing lanes for animals and much more.
