Amphibians and the cold weather

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone sending in Big Pond Thaw forms.

For the second year in a row Pond Conservation is getting a lot of reports of dead amphibians, mainly Common Frogs, following the cold weather.

It seems to be mostly down to ponds (and so frogs) running out of oxygen under the ice.

Help us find out more about the problem by completing a Big Pond Thaw form online.

We’re interested to hear both about ponds that have had dead fish or amphibians, and those that haven’t.

And look out for our campaigns to save freshwater wildlife more generally, Support Us if you love water, and find out more about the Million Ponds Project.
