AbstractAbstract PDF
The incidence of roadkill and habitat fragmentation caused by human development and road networks is on the rise. Cats primarily consume artificial food and engage in hunting near urban areas. Their numbers have an impact on the ecosystem, and cat roadkill incidents are also prevalent. In South Korea, roadkill observations are conducted by the road management agency and the Korea Roadkill Observation System. Over a 3-year period, the number of cat roadkill incidents resulted in 19,973 recorded cases, and the highest rate was in Busan Metropolitan City. Cat roadkill incidents were most prevalent during October and November. Also When analyzed at the local government level, Dangjin-si, Yangpyeong-gun, and Busan Metropolitan City exhibited the highest concentrations. This research offers essential insights for managing the cat population and mitigating cat roadkill occurrences.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Roads, railways and infrastructure are constructed with consideration of their environmental impacts, especially habitat fragmentation. Wildlife crossing structures increase the permeability of roads and other linear infrastructures for wildlife by allowing animals to safely cross under or over roads and by reducing the risk of wildlife-vehicle collosions. We investigated the location and type of 564 wildlife crossing structures in South Korea. Between April and October 2023, we identified 365 overpasses and 199 underpasses of wildlife crossing structures respectively. Gyeonggi-do and Gyeongsangbuk-do had the largest number of wildlife crossing structures. This study can provide basic information for the effective management of wildlife crossing structures.
