THIS year – as in previous years – conservationists have helped common toads during their spring migration at the Železná Studienka forest in Bratislava.

The Slovak Association of Environmentalists and Country Protectors helped the toads and European common brown frogs to cross the road without being killed by first building barriers, then carrying the frogs across the road to ponds during the weekend of March 19-20.

After the toads and frogs have laid their eggs and left the ponds the barriers are torn down.
Detailed records are kept of both the frogs killed and the frogs saved, the SITA newswire was informed by the national organisation and a local organisation, Miniopterus of Bratislava.
