Amphibian Rescue Fence
Every year countless numbers of Frogs, Toads, Newts and
Salamanders are killed on the roads on their way to their
In each location, hundreds and even thousands of animals can die.
An effective and simple way of preventing this is to set up our Rescue
Fence. This guides them safely towards containers which are buried in
the ground and into which they safely fall. The animals are then regularly
collected, brought over to the opposite side of the road and released near
the ponds where they spawn.
The SCHWEGLER Amphibian Rescue Fence contains everything needed to
provide rapid assistance.
The highly tear-resistant HDPE synthetic fabric is suitable for all weathers
and, being UV-stable, will last for many years. It is water- and dirt-repellant
and is more effective at resisting gusts of wind than plastic sheets. Under
practical conditions the material and the height of the fence have proved to
be highly effective. The SCHWEGLER rescue fence for amphibians has been
designed for temporary erection when the animals are migrating, and the
emphasis is on rapid and flexible installation.

100 m Rescue Fence includes:
» 100 m green woven plastic netting, height 50 cm
» 60 galvanized supporting posts
» 60 height adjustable net holders
» 100 galvanized pegs
» 6 net connectors (used when joining two 100 m nets)
» 10 buckets to catch the amphibians
One of the advantages of the woven netting is its lightness, which ensures
it does not billow in the wind and is not deformed by sunlight. However, the
mesh is sufficiently small that Newts, etc., cannot slip through. The net is
easily and rapidly attached to the posts using the adjustable net holders.
The metal supporting posts are pushed (or hammered) into the ground and
the net holders are fixed onto them. The button tape of the plastic netting is
now buttoned into the height-adjustable net holders and the bottom hem is
secured with the pegs, with soil or stones or if necessary is buried. The net
connectors can be used to join several 100 m of netting together in a row.
