The Sunday Guardian - - The Week -

WAR­WICK: A small group of British con­ser­va­tion­ists are in­stalling mesh- cov­ered lad­ders in road­side drains to save trapped am­phib­ians from cer­tain death. The War­wick­shire Am­phib­ian and Rep­tile Team—the mem­o­rably acronymed WART—hopes that by plac­ing 20 of the rust-re­sis­tant alu­minum lad­ders down drains, they can boost the dwin­dling am­phib­ian pop­u­la­tion.
