Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is helping residents at Pitchcombe to erect a fence to prevent hundreds of toads being squashed.
The temporary fence will be patrolled nightly by a team of trained ‘Toad Patrollers’ who will carefully pick up the toads and carry them to the other side of the road.
Campaigners say numbers of toads are seriously diminishing due to the loss of farmland breeding ponds which have declined by 90 per cent in the last fifty years.
