Day 1 - Play snakes and toad tunnels!

Play our great snakes and toad tunnels game! Follow the plucky toad as it climbs up toad tunnels and slides down the grass snakes on his way to the breeding pond to get the best pick of the females avoiding danger and distractions along the way! Download your printable board below.


Day 2 - Go on a guided nature walk!

On Wednesday 6th June, join us for a Dorset heath ramble and pond visit to discover the wildlife found on our Ferndown Common nature reserve, with particular interest in the sand lizard and grass snake. Find out more on the event page!

Look out for more guided walks throughout the summer and if we don't have an event near you why not check out your local Wildlife Trust website? 


Day 3 - Create an amphibian or reptile themed collage from natural materials!

Explore your garden or local park and gather some natural materials such as leaves, twigs and feathers and use them to create a beautiful collage of a newt, toad, frog, snake or lizard!


Day 4 - Learn about the UK's loudest amphibian!

In spring, on warm, still nights, the adult male natterjacks toads gather round the breeding pools and emit a rasping call. The louder the call the more chance they have of attracting a female. This can be heard up to a mile away! On one occasion a clever young male was seen calling from inside a jam jar which amplified the sound! Learn more about these lovely little toads on our species information page.


Day 5 - Become a conservation volunteer! 

If you'd like to spend more time outdoors, want a fun way to get fit or would just like to meet some great new people why not come along to one of our volunteer tasks and make a big difference to local wildlife at the same time! Check our our volunteer pages for ore information. If we don’t have any events near you why not check out your local ARG or Wildlife Trust?


Day 6 - Improve your amphibian identification skills!

Do you know how to tell the difference between a frog and a toad or which newt you have in your pond? Download our free amphibian ID guide and brush up your skills! 


Day 7 - Make an origami pool frog!

Follow our simple instructions to create your very own origami pool frog, the UK’s rarest amphibian! Download them below! Read more about these elusive little critters and the work we’re doing to reintroduce them.


More to come!
