I would like to celebrate Mabel for her brilliant dedication to the Wildmoor Toad Patrol.
She has completed training and yesterday we went on our first toad patrol together. We rescued 18 toads, 2 newts and 10 frogs after 2 miles of patrol.
The toads get stranded on the road and are often found dead which is really sad. The Wildmoor Toad patrol volunteer their time to help amphibians cross the road safely/ carry them to their pond.
This is such a lovely and caring thing to do Mabel. Well done for giving up your time to help others and good luck with your future rescues.
