Tunnels saving toads from traffic, new research


This 3 June 2015 Dutch video, in English, is about tunnels saving common toads from traffic. How effective are they?

New research in Ede town in Gelderland province says that of 800 toads on one side of a dangerous road, 300 animals used the tunnels. So, the tunnels do work; but not enough yet. There should be more tunnels, decreasing the distances the toads have to go before reaching a tunnel.
