Green marks the animal hotspot

GREEN Spot is back in 2018 and residents in the Shire of Mundaring are being asked to identify locations where native animals appear the most active.

The initiative, which has been running since 2014, sees signs displaying a green spot and the WildCare Helpline (08 9474 9055) placed in ten locations throughout the Shire.

The signs remain in place over spring and summer each year to assist residents in calling for help for injured animals.

Environmental officer Jolene Wallington said continuation of the Green Spot Program would increase community awareness about wildlife on local roads.

“The initiative ensures road users know who to call when they see an injured animal,” she said.

“Finding an injured animal or accidentally causing injury to wildlife on our roads can be a distressing experience.

“The strategic placement of Green Spot signs in our Shire means road users can quickly and easily call for help.”

Ms Wallington said the Shire was inviting people to nominate those streets where they think a sign is needed.

“Calling for nominations each year makes sure we keep informed of locations where a sign is needed the most,” she said.

“The signs are also a great reminder for drivers to slow down and pay attention to wildlife in the area.”

Residents can nominate a Green Spot location by filling in a simple online survey via the Shire website www.mundaring.wa.gov.au. The survey closes on February 28.
