Participation - how you can help
As part of this project we have recruited a core net-work of data recorders including RSPCA and SSPCA Inspectors, Forestry Enterprise Wildlife Rangers and other deer managers who often deal with incidents. If you regularly deal with injured or dead deer following collisions and would be willing to assist with this study please contact us to discuss the most convenient way in which you can contribute your records
You can submit records directly on the 'forms' page and this is the most efficient way of getting data to us.
We are also working closely with organisations such as Police Forces, County Council Roads departments, Insurance Companies and our Partner organisations.

Information on insurance claims can potentially be one of the most extensive sources of nationally representative information. We are most grateful to FORTIS Insurance who have so far been the only company able to extract details of dates and locations of claims relating specifically to deer.
We would very much like to hear also from other Insurance companies to help up extent this important sample.
However - In order to gain as full a picture as possible of the extent of minor as well as major traffic accidents involving deer, we are in addition inviting input from any individual members of the public who have been involved in traffic accidents with deer.
With increasing numbers of wild boar roaming the English countryside, any traffic collisions with wild boar can also be reported on our 'form' page. More information about wild boar can be found at www.wild-boar.org.uk
How to deal with a roadside incident
Advice for stalkers / vets / police and others who are called to deal with injured deer at the roadside may be found in an Advice note developed by BASC and the British Deer Society "Road Traffic Accidents and the Humane Dispatch of Deer" (obtainable from BASC, and BDS)
