ToadNUTS is proud to present our new youth program which falls under the umbrella of Jane Goodall's ROOTS and SHOOTS program to make a positive change for people, animals and our environment!
Our youth program is called ToadNUTS kids and will initially be role modeled by Noordhaven Montessori ToadNUTS kids.
They have come up with several ideas of how they can make a positive change in their environment and we will be blogging their progress shortly.
If you would like to become a ToadNUTS kid, all you need to do is join our website and comment on their blogs and/or add photos, blogs or videos of how you have made a similar positive change in your environment.
Children from all around the world, please join in and make a difference!

The western leopard toad (Amietophrynus pantherinus) is a protected wild animal in terms of the Nature Conservation Ordinance No. 19 of 1974. This means that no person may harm, capture, possess, or transport this species, or keep it in captivity, without a permit from CapeNature, the provincial nature conservation authority. No commercial trade is allowed in this species, and any person conducting research on this species requires a permit from CapeNature.
The Toad NUTS (Noordhoek Unpaid Toad Savers) are an exciting group of volunteers with the aim of saving the endangered Western Leopard Toad from extinction.We work together with all toad volunteers in Cape Town (South Africa) and are supported by the WLT-CC (Western Leopard Toad Conservation Comittee)
We are also privelaged to fall under the umbrella of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots programe and are very happy to have her as our role model!

After hearing toads calling on 28 August 2012, at five of the wetlands on Youngsfield Military Base, we were thrilled to find our first four confirmed toadlets emerging this afternoon! So it was not just the sound of lonely males we were hearing, but that of successful breeding endeavours! Yippee!
This poor animal was killed crossing Ou Kaapse Weg on Saturday morning..
Please can we appeal to the city of Cape Town to reduce the speed limit on Ou Kaapse Weg as it runs directly through a nature reserve and the roadkill of biodiversity, which is recorded is overwhelming!!…
Everyone is amazed at the loud and plentiful snoring this year. The KirMiTS ponds are still calling Raapkraal, Duck Pond, Westlake River at Lakeside Main Road, Rutter Road and all over the Marina. Many volunteers out last night and again tonight.
Tuesday was our big night so far - 309 toads - 264 in Kirstenhof (with 8 dead) plus the 30 volunteers reported in an earlier blog. Thanks again to the volunteers - we really value your involvement.
