The action "Večna pot" will start again

A year has passed and STOPJEŽ will again join the action of transfering amphibians on Večna pot in Ljubljana, organized by Societas herpetologica slovenica (SHS) - Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles. The aim is to prevent massive road kills of amphibians, which in early spring migrate from wintering to spawning areas. Often roads cross their migration ways, like in the case of Večna pot. Therefore, members of the SHS already for several years in a row organize an action, during which a protective fence is set. The fence prevents amphibians from accessing the road. This fence is then reviewed daily in the evening, amphibians found are picked up and transferred to the other side of the road. All amphibians, alive and dead, are determined and recorded, as this is the way to gather enough information that will contribute to finding of durable solution. Mass migration of amphibians across the road is dangerous not only for them but also for the drivers as the killed amphibians make the road slippery.

That is why you are warmly welcome to join the action also this year. The action will start with setting up the fence on Saturday, 3rd March 2012 at 8 o'clock. The meeting point is the parking place of Biology Department, Večna pot 111. Since we will work along the road, safety vests are obligatory. It is also recommended that you bring with you working gloves and a hammer. More information is available on
