Toad traffic regulators wanted in Latvia

Take note – story published 2 years and 2 months ago

The Nature Conservation Agency (DAP) is warning drivers to look out for sleepy-eyed amphibians, DAP representative Elīna Ezeriņa told Latvian Radio April 13.

Hundreds of toads die in road traffic accidents every year. One option would be to launch an educational program teaching traffic regulations to amphibians. Another, perhaps an easier one – to give a toad a hand.

DAP has identified locations where road and toad traffic clash, and is looking for volunteers to help the amphibians cross. There is a chance such work might result in some toads turning into princes but a desire to help nature is probably a more honorable motive than wanting to marry into royalty, amphibian or otherwise.

To volunteer for the position of toad traffic regulator, interested individuals can apply at the DAP's website section Mission Toad.
