Scottish wildlife protected using our Wildlife Kerbs

Our Wildlife Kerbs have been used on a scheme in a Perthshire town to help prevent local wildlife being washed down the drain.

During migration, amphibians will often follow the kerb line and it’s staggering to hear that in this county alone, an estimated 47,000 could fall down a road gully and become trapped!

Our Wildlife Kerb has a built in recess which allows amphibians to continue on their natural path but avoid the danger of a road side gully.

Watch this video from ARGUK to see how Perth and Kinross Council have been piloting the use of these kerbs to help the local wildlife.

  1. Good idea. It would be interested to see data on numbers of amphibians found before and after the installation of the special kerb over a 2 year period for say 10 locations.

    Keep us in the loop!
