This is a Dutch video about toad migration.
Translated from RAVON in the Netherlands:
Over 100,000 amphibians helped to cross safely in 2008!
In the Netherlands, there are many toad committees, protecting amphibians during the so called toad migration. …
As might be expected, most of the animals which have been helped to cross [in 2008] were Eurasian toads. Second are common frogs, 9,248 of them. Third are common newts. Also big numbers of more rare species have been helped. 1,061 moor frogs, 988 natterjack toads [see also here], and 118 Alpine newts have reached the other sides of roads safely. Apart from amphibians, also some other animals have been helped to cross, including slow worms, a sand lizard, field voles, shrews and a dung beetle.
