This is the essential ‘in-car’ book for any road traveller in Australia and it will fit in your glovebox. With about one million kilometres of road, anyone travelling them is, sadly, very likely to see or cause roadkill.
This book provides an overview of the types of roadkill, hints on what to do with them, how to clean bugs off the car and an eclectic mix of other information – from road safety to recipes.

In addition the book gives an unusual insight into the many aspects of Australia’s very special fauna, albeit in a somewhat macabre way.  These include a definition and scope of the roadkill problem, how to avoid killing things as much as possible and, perhaps most importantly, wise advice about what to do with roadkill and being aware of the worst case scenarios.

More than 200 photographs of roadkill, all allowing identification of the major animal groups and an excellent guide on how to avoid and observe roadkill and who to send interesting specimens or photographs to.

Roadkill was shortlisted for the Whitley Award for significant contribution to Australian zoology.
