KOROIT and district residents have been urged to support a bid to lower the speed limit on the rim of Tower Hill.
Suzanne Hughes, who lives on Lowery Road, runs a wildlife shelter and time and time again cares for emus or kangaroos that have been hit by cars.
"People are speeding and hitting the wildlife," Ms Hughes said.
"We really want the speed limit to be reduced to 60km/h around the rim of Tower Hill."
Ms Hughes said residents who lived near Tower Hill were devastated that one of the reserve's resident emus - a single dad with a chick - had been hit and killed recently.
"That single dad had won the hearts of just about everyone on Lakeview Road," she said.
Ms Hughes urged residents to attend the meeting at St Brigid's in Crossley at 7pm on Monday night.
