Wildlife-vehicle collisions imperil humans, wildlife and property. Collisions with moose are the most consequential form of collision across much of Alaska and Canada, and they are likely influenced by the effect of snow on moose movements. This webinar will draw a link between seasonal changes in driving difficulty and moose movements that lead to a predictable spike in moose-vehicle collisions during winter. We can use this knowledge to predict the times and places where collision risk is highest, and ultimately reduce avoidable human and animal suffering.
