Common toads are very particular about where they breed and
often migrate back to their ancestral breeding ponds each year.
They follow the same route, regardless of what gets in their
way, which sometimes leads to them crossing roads. Where we get
this toad vs. traffic scenario, the toads inevitably come off
The Toads on Roads project registers these sites as 'migratory
crossings' and helps coordinate local Toad Patrols, who can
apply for road warning signs to be installed and actively help
the toads across the road.
