Wildlife Safety Solutions Logo in white

Virtual Fencing is an active electronic protection system that alerts animals  before  crossing the road when a vehicle is approaching  between dusk to dawn. 

 

It is proven to be extremely effective in preventing wildlife-vehicle collisions in Australia and around the world.

 

WELCOME TO WILDLIFE SAFETY SOLUTIONS
THE HOME OF VIRTUAL FENCING.

 

OUR AIM

 

Our aim is to protect the wildlife of Australia and enhance the safety of drivers with the latest road-kill mitigation technology. Our latest testing has seen a 50% reduction in wildlife vehicle collisions. The virtual fence uses the latest non invasive audio and visual systems to alert animals and prevent vehicle contact.

Wildlife is a widely underestimated challenge to traffic safety. Every year in Australia there are many thousands of accidents involving wildlife and vehicles, resulting in wildlife deaths and injuries, injuries and loss of life to people, and damage to vehicles and property.

HELPING THE SURVIVAL
OF THE TASMANIAN DEVIL

 

Virtual fencing made its Australian debut in Tasmania where the technology is utilised to help protect the vulnerable Tasmanian devil. Firstly we identified hotspots where healthy Tasmanian devils were being killed by vehicles. WSS set up the first test site in a disease free area and has seen a 50% reduction in road kill events across the common species recorded.
