What is it?

The Green Spot Program is a community driven initiative held once a year to identify the most popular wildlife crossing locations.

If you know a spot on your street where native animals are frequently spotted near roads, you can fill out our survey and the Shire will undertake consultation to provide animal crossing signage in the identified 'green spot.'

This project aims to reduce the amount of roadkill, raise awareness and encourage cautious driving to protect our furry locals. 

More about the Green Spot program

The Green Spot Program was developed by the Shire after a suggestion from our Environmental Advisory Committee, to help inform road users of wildlife in the area.

Note: Speed limits are determined and speed limit signs installed by Main Roads WA, not local governments.  Main Roads WA will not usually install 50 km per hour speed limit signs because that is the default speed limit.

Once a year, community suggestions are invited for sign locations where wildlife are regularly seen crossing roads, or have been injured or killed by vehicles. These suggestions from residents informs the location of 10 signs around the shire.  

Green Spot Survey - Opening in Spring 2024

Shire of Mundaring residents will be invited to complete the Green Spot survey on Engage Mundaring in October 2024 to assist in identifying areas of higher risk and frequency where animals cross the road.

The survey is part of the 2024 Green Spot Program, which alerts drivers to watch out for wildlife crossing points.

Two Green Spot road signs, with the Wildcare Helpline number, will be displayed at the most reported locations in the shire. 

Signage is relocated based on community suggestions, and will remain in place for 12 months. 

To help the Shire identify this year’s green spots, complete the survey via Engage Mundaring website.
