What We Do

Volunteers from the frog and toad patrol go out nightly from when the migration starts for about six weeks when it ends. Migration normally starts mid-February but is temperature dependent and can be earlier or later. Amphibians are collected by the volunteers in buckets and taken to the Ecology park or to the ponds in The Vale depending on where they are found.

If you’d like to help even if it’s just for a night please get in touch using one of the methods on the contact page.

This is our welcome pack for new volunteers. You will be accompanied by an experienced patroller who will help you.
