According to the AA a shocking 42,000 deer are killed on the roads each year with over 400 people injured. Epping Forest is home to hundreds of fallow and muntjac deer.
In October and November they have just one thing on their minds…they are breeding and are likely to jump out on the roads than at other times of the year.
Sadly many of these beautiful animals are killed by cars and there is very little in place to raise awareness.
WACC are running a rutting season awareness campaign and we need your help.
If you want to help raise awareness and help reduce deer vehicle accidents please let us know.
We are going to be standing on the road edge with our banner in four hot spot locations:
- Mondays: Epping New Rd/Earl’s Path (Robin Hood)
- Tuesdays: Upshire Rd/Horseshoe Hill/Woodgreen Rd (Sergeants Green)
- Wednesdays: Miller and Carter roundabout
- Thursdays: Honey Lane/Woodridden Hill (Volunteer/Woodbine)
- 07:00 – 08:00
- 18:00 – 19:00
- 22:00 – 22:30
We’ll only run sessions when at least three people are signed up. Hi-viz vests will be provided.
If you can help out please let us know:
