Volunteers to save frogs and toads

22 February 2007

Meteorological conditions are just right, temperature over 7 Celsius and high humidity, for amphibians to get out of hibernation and trace their steps back to the lakes where they are born.

Mario Ninanne of the Ornithology commission warned that after they come out of hibernation they tend to cross roads and risk being run over by motor vehicles.

To prevent the death of these amphibians groups of volunteers gather every year and help these helpless animals cross selected streets safely at night.
