Wildlife mirrors save lives of roe deer

July 21, 09:24

WINTERSWIJK – Putting more wildlife mirrors along the roads in the Achterhoek region has ensured that far fewer roe deer are killed by traffic.

35 deer

Last year “only” 35 deer died. “That’s about 20 percent lower than in other years,” said Jurgen Hejink, secretary of the Wildlife Management Unit (WBE) Winterswijk and surroundings.

Blue reflectors

Blue reflectors are placed by the game management units along several roads in the Achterhoek. Roe deer are scared of light rays of cars that are reflected by the blue reflectors. That keeps them from running on the roads.
