I chose to study how the weather affects roadkill. I think that warm weather will make more roadkill and that cooler weather will make less roadkill. Also warm weather can make more roadkill because it could make berries and nuts fall in the road, which would attract animals. More people would be out driving on a warm day, they could be on their way to a beach or a park. The more people on the road means more roadkill.
My prediction was right. On warm days there were 18 animals killed and on cooler days there was 16 animals killed. Also on cooler days there was 11 animals not killed and on the warmer days there was 5 animals not killed. It show that on the cooler days there was a lot less roadkill than on the warm days.
There were probably other things other than warm weather that affected the roadkill. The warm weather could have caused berries and nuts to fall in the road. I wish there was a way for me to record the animals that died because of eating something in the road.
Next year I would want to predict the weather again. That way I could come back to this year’s data and compare them. I would like to find out if anyone recorded how weather affected roadkill in the previous years.
