There are a number of ways you can get involved in Toads on Roads and help out:
- Become a Toad Patroller. Have a look at our map for your nearest Patrol site, or for a toad crossing that is in need of a Patrol to go out and help the toads. Public Engagement Officer Sivi Sivanesan will put you in touch with your local Patrol and help get you signed up as a volunteer. Check the map for the name of your nearest Patrol, and drop Sivi an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Register a Toad Crossing. Let us know if you spot large numbers of toads crossing in an unpatrolled area, or see a number of dead toads. You can find more information on the requirements for a site to be registered and start the process at our website here.
- Watch out for the Toads on Roads signs. These temporary signs are placed in areas where there are likely to be toads crossing on warm, wet evenings, as well as potentially people in the road helping collect toads in buckets and move them to safety. Please slow down if you see one of these signs whilst driving, and keep an eye out for animals and volunteers.
- Support Toads on Roads. You can donate to the Tuppence a Toad appeal – this fund helps us to continue to support the hard working volunteers on the ground and keep rescuing toads into the future. You can find out more about Tuppence a Toad here, or make a donation here (add that it’s for the Tuppence a Toad fund in the notes when you donate).
- Send a Toad Card. We have a pack of colourful toad greetings cards available in our online shop here.
- Spread the word.
The more people that are aware of the threats to toads, the road signs and what we can
all do to help, the better.
