Ask any animal lover and they’ll likely be able to tell you a story about stopping in traffic to help a turtle cross the road in the spring time. You know the rule: always take the animal in the direction it was already heading or you’re wasting both your time and the creature’s time. It’s being instinctively driven by a water source, chance for reproduction or another primal urge, not traffic!
But have you ever stopped traffic to help frogs cross the road? Frogs that travel in breeding pools, particularly at nighttime in the spring, are also susceptible to harm. It can be difficult to help when so many are crossing at once, but many wildlife volunteers have spent time doing just that.
Have you ever stopped to help a frog cross the road? What other animals have you assisted?
