On the London TOAD project, we are focusing on large-scale habitat work on major wildlife sites within London. With the help of volunteers and other groups we aim on creating and maintaining green corridors around London to allow our amphibian species safe movement between natural spaces – which is imperative for common toads. Research undertaken by the University of Zurich analysing Froglife’s 30+ year toad database has concluded that toads have suffered a population decline of around 68%, mostly due to habitat fragmentation and road fatalities. Legacy is also an important aspect of Froglife’s work, so we will be training all those involved in the project to skill up with species identification and habitat management. Throughout the project we have worked at multiple habitat sites. Click the links below to find out about the sites we have already worked at in Bexley, Lambeth, Enfield & Brent.
Additional works have also occurred at Argyle Limpsfield and Edgecombe Hall ponds, Wandsworth
