Make Way for Toadlets

Citizens of Chilliwack, BC, Canada, have closed off roads to protect Western toadlets on their annual migration. The toads breed in wetlands, but must migrate across a busy road to reach the forested areas where they spend the rest of the summer and winter. Over a 3-day period, volunteers saved over 38,000 toads.

Here is a cute slide show of the event and a YouTube video of one tiny straggler’s epic journey across the road.
