- New study co-authored by Froglife and published open access! Installing amphibian tunnels and guiding fences at three hot-spots for amphibian roadkill in Sweden reduced the estimated number of amphibians killed or at risk of being killed by car traffic in spring by 85–100% in mitigated road sections and the number amphibians successfully crossing the road increased by an estimated 25–340%.

Remember to record your amphibian and reptile sightings on our Dragon Finder app.
If you see dead amphibians or reptiles this year in your garden please report it to the Garden Wildlife Health Project and help increase our knowledge of wildlife diseases in Britain.
Our latest Annual Review can be found here. As you can see, we are a rapidly growing charity, with some wonderful projects funded mainly through grant making trusts. With most funders covering 60-90% of the costs of a project and generally funding us in arrears (we have to spend the money first, then claim it back), we are still very much in need of your support to continue our work to help protect reptiles and amphibians.
Our app is available to download so that you can enter your sightings.
