Cape Town - Motorists are warned to look out for more than just pedestrians on city roads as endangered western leopard toads make their way to breeding ponds from their foraging areas.The City of Cape Town said in a statement the amphibians’ annual breeding migration period is between July and September. It warned motorists in the southern suburbs to reduce their speed, particularly on rainy nights, to avoid injuring the species.Posters have been placed along roads where most of the movement takes place to mark areas where motorists should be most vigilant.Most have been placed on the Cape Flats, in Clovelly, Bergvliet, Constantia, Diep River, Fish Hoek, Glencairn, Grassy Park, Hout Bay, Kirstenhof, Kommetjie, Lakeside, Noordhoek, Observatory, Scarborough, Strandfontein, Tokai and at Zeekoevlei.The awareness initiative is coordinated by the Western Leopard Toad Conservation Committee – a group representing the city, the South African National Biodiversity Institute, CapeNature, South African National Parks - and volunteers.The team goes the extra mile to protect these threatened species, said mayoral committee member for energy, environmental and spatial planning Johan van der Merwe."I know some of the volunteer activities include braving the winter roadside conditions to ensure the safety of migrating toads when their movement reaches a peak and road mortality is at its highest," he said."We appeal to all motorists and residents to be mindful of our smaller neighbours. The continued survival of this threatened species depends on our consideration for the world around us and the small ways in which we can all make a difference."
