Natterjack Toads

Natterjack Toads - Formby Nature Reserve

The National Trust team at Formby Nature Reserve are helping to create habitats for Natterjack Toads

The National Trust team are working in partnership with Dynamic Dunescapes. Areas of overgrown vegetation are being removed and pools restored or even created. Natterjack toads are rare, the Sefton coastline being one of the few areas in the UK where they can be found. Due to their presence, the area has gained several international conservation designations.

Of course, the Sefton coast is also home to other endangered species. These include Sand Lizards and Northern Dune Tiger Beetles. We should also not forget Red Squirrels, who make their home at Formby.

Formby Nature Reserve is one of the local properties supported by SoFA. To enquire about joining SoFA please fill in our Contact Form.
