Kootenay’s Western Toad Helpers

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Kootenay region in BC is helping western toads! What a cool event where community members get hands on and carry toads from their breeding place, the shoreline of Summit Lake, across Highway 6 and into their upland habitat. There was even an installation of directional fencing and culverts called “toad tunnels” in 2006 to further help guide these little guys underneath the highway.
