Stop the Swap

A number of people like to donate frogspawn to other gardeners. This is obviously done with good intentions but Froglife advise against this. They argue against this to stop the spread of invasive pond plants, animals and amphibian disease.

According to Froglife Head of Conservation Daniel Piec,

Sadly, moving frogspawn around often serves only to heighten the risk of moving around invasive plants and diseases that have potential to do real harm to frogs and other pond-inhabitants. If you want to do the best for wildlife, our advice is to leave frogspawn where it is and let nature do the rest.
