This video from the USA says about itself:
On warm early spring nights amphibians across Vermont are on the move. Unfortunately, in many areas these migrations take them across heavily traveled roads resulting in high mortality rates. However, a dedicated group of volunteers has been keeping an eye on the spring weather. When conditions are right these salamander saviors descend on known crossing sites both to ensure a safe migration and to learn more about some of Vermont’s most delicate and rarest residents.
After a slow start, amphibian spring migration in the Netherlands has started seriously. According to Dutch daily De Stentor, in the Kuinderbos nature reserve on the border of Overijssel and Flevoland provinces, on 18 March 1570 amphibians have been helped by people to cross dangerous roads.
The helpers included government forest service people, conservation education people, and schoolchildren.
The amphibians helped across the roads to their mating waters included 1335 toads, 161 frogs (probably common frogs) and 64 newts.
Last year, less than ten thousand amphibians were counted during the whole spring migration. Two years ago they were 17,550.
Kuinderbos update: on 26 March, amphibian #10,000 was helped to cross safely.

USA: Amphibians — frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts — are disappearing worldwide, but the stream salamanders of the Appalachian Mountains appear to be stable. This region is home to the largest diversity of salamanders in the world (more than 70 species reside here), and scientists want to understand what contributes to the stability of these salamander populations: here.
