I chose to study how much roadkill was on the roads in Rye/ New Castle from the past three years. My hypothesis was that Washington Road would have the most roadkill because it is one of the main roads in Rye, and it pretty much goes from one end to another.
I discovered that over the past three years a couple of the roads went from being full of roadkill to not much at all, or not much to a lot, or to about the same for all of the years, or to little amount to a big amount but then back to a large amount. The different roads had different effects on how much road kill was on them because some roads are busier than others and there may have been a couple of roads that nobody has been on.
Yeah, I expected that Washington road would have the most road kill and I was right. I expected that Washington road would have the most road kill because it is a very busy road and in a lot of cases you have to go that road to get a lot of places so that was a good place to guess. With most experiments not exactly everything can be accurate so we could have missed a lot of road kill, not gone on every street just things like that.
Next year I predict that maybe there will be more road kill than this year, because maybe it will get warmer out earlier in the year and than more animals will come out. I would also look at more roads and probably go back more years to get more information for more accurate
