  • The objectives of this project are:
  1. To determine rates of owl-vehicle collisions on interstates in southern Idaho.
  2. To develop a data-based tool to predict owl mortality "hot spots".
  3. To assess potential mitigation strategies in reducing owl-vehicle collisions.
  4. To reduce driver risk and strengthen ITD support of the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act by minimizing owl-vehicle collisions.
  5. To establish a public-private collaboration to work on owl-vehicle collision research and mitigation.
