Toads on roads

We don’t have any significant toad sites in Bexley (as far as I am aware) where we need a Toad patrol to help toads across roads, but colleagues may find toads that have been squashed on their migration to breeding ponds.

If you do, then you can help the ToadSize Project of the Amphibian and Reptile Groups of the UK.

They are measuring dead toads to see the impact of road casualties on populations. You can read more and get the report form at their website http://www.arguk.org/toadsize2013-getting-the-measure-of-toads-that-cross-roads
