In recent years, wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVC) on highways have become a serious problem, causing harm to both wild animals and drivers. Wildlife surveillance has emerged as an important tool to address this issue. CCTV systems can provide low-cost wildlife monitoring, but their performance can be hindered by environmental factors such as low light and poor weather conditions, leading to blurry and grainy imageries. To address these limitations, we propose a robust approach that integrates visual and acoustic signals for improved wildlife recognition. Our method utilizes machine learning techniques to extract features from both modalities and combines them through a multi-modal fusion framework. We evaluate our approach on a dataset of wildlife recordings and demonstrate its superiority over state-of-the-art methods that rely solely on visual or audio information. Our results highlight the potential of integrating visual and audio signals for wildlife recognition, with potential applications in conservation and ecological research
