Instructions

Please submit observations of wildlife seen (alive or dead) on the roadway, in the median, or alongside the roadway as you were traveling I-90 between North Bend and Easton. Note that participation is entirely voluntary, and intended for people who are at least 18 years of age.

Only 5–10 minutes will be required to complete the observation form.

At the end of the observation form, you will have the option to enter your personal contact information. Your contact information is not required to enter an observation. Optional contact information will be used only by I-90 Wildlife Watch researchers if they need to contact you with additional questions about your observation.

Your observation data will be made public. The database linking your observation data to your name (if you choose to enter your contact information), however, is accessible only to I-90 Wildlife Watch researchers and is treated as confidential information.
