With rain in the forecast, many species of mature amphibians are on the move to nearby breeding ponds and wetlands from their winter in the forest. During their nocturnal migration, many species are faced with crossing busy roads and often meet their demise by fast-moving cars on slick roadways.
Habitat Acquisition Trust is asking people to report sightings of frog and salamander crossings on roads in the CRD to help us identify the major problem sites and develop a mitigation plan for reducing this impact.
Be sure to take caution on busy roads if you are identifying amphibian road kill sites on wet, dark nights!
