Tunnels for natterjack toads

Published söndag 6 november 2011 kl 11.33

Some rare Swedish frogs are hoping that a new housing development will not cut off their access to the sea.

Today Sölvesborg in southern Sweden opens up the road to the new housing area Ljungaviken. And tunnels under the road are designed to help natterjack toads find their way from a local lake, to the Sölvesborg bay.

The natterjak toad (Epidalea calamita) is named on their Red List as a threatened species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Although the toads are fairly common across parts of southern Europe, they are only present in tiny strips of southern coastal Sweden.
