Did you know…?
An estimated one million animals are killed on roads in the United States every day.
You have a 1 in 52 ​​chance of hitting an animal while driving in Pennsylvania
​Pennsylvania ranks among the top 3 in the country for animal-vehicle collisions
And while most animals that are hit by cars don’t survive, some of the lucky ones make it into the care of wildlife rehabilitators. Wildlife rehabilitators are a special breed of their own, caring for orphaned, sick, and injured wildlife to be released back into the wild. They have proficient knowledge of all kinds of animals, from birds and bunnies to raccoons, foxes, squirrels, bats, and turtles, and they must have special permits for housing and handling of these creatures.

Wildlife rehabs are always understaffed and underfunded. They need monetary support for food, medicine, cleaning supplies, housing materials, and various items required to care for the animals we care so much about.

Wildlife Rehabilitators

  1. People who give tirelessly of their time, energy and resources for wildlife
  2. People who work around the clock for wild animals and are not permitted to ask for money for their services
  3. People who work like “postpartum moms” for wildlife, all year long!
  4. People who drive for hours to pick up a sick or injured animal for rescue and rehab
  5. People we don’t have enough of 

End Roadkill in Pennsylvania

​“Wildlife rehabilitation centers need our help! These centers take care of all species of wildlife that have been injured by vehicles on Pennsylvania roads. The professional staff of wildlife rehabilitation centers are often assisted by dedicated volunteers who spend hours of their own time caring for animals with all types of injuries. The goal is for rehabilitated wildlife to return to their natural habitat. Pennsylvania ranks as one of the top states in accidents involving animals. Conservation corridors can help us to move down in those rankings.

For the reasons stated above, I am pleased to endorse ‘End Roadkill PA.’”
– State Rep. Mary Jo Daley*, 148th District/Montgomery County

Representative Daley introduced House Resolution 670, a resolution directing the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee to conduct a study and issue a report on the feasibility of establishing conservation corridors in this Commonwealth.

END ROADKILL is more than a fundraising initiative, more than just a brand or a cool message.

​It’s a vision for the future—a future free from wildlife being killed on roads, a future in which ecoengineering incorporates wildlife bridges and wildlife corridors into highway and housing planning, and a future in which habitat is treated as equally important as humanity.

The END ROADKILL brand umbrella includes marketing and fundraising initiatives such as the END ROADKILL Pennsylvania project and the Pennsylvania Wildlife Samaritans calendar to raise funds for wildlife rehabilitation in the Keystone State. 100 percent of proceeds from END ROADKILL and Give Wildlife a Brake products sold through The Wildlife Corridor Store Unlimited also support wildlife rehab.
