Toad on road

Hi All

it is that time of the year again and the female toads are on the move! Up to seven male Western Leopard Toads were heard calling along the northern shoreline of Rondevlei over the weekend and the females, full of eggs, are moving toward them.

Please be extra vigilant when driving in the Zeekoevlei area over the next few days. If you encounter a toad on the road, please move it in the direction it is traveling. Let’s help this species during this dangerous time.

The Western Leopard Toad is only found on the Cape Town lowlands from Observatory and Phillip southwards. Another small population is located in Hermanus. The species is listed as globally “Endangered”.
