Amphibian Protection Fence


Frogs, toads and newts are under threat of extinction and therefore they must be protected.

In the spawning season, they often cross roads intersecting their route to their spawning grounds where they succumb to passing vehicles. To contribute to their safety, AGROTEL has developed protection fences in collaboration with leading biologists which fulfil all criteria of species-appropriate and efficient safeguarding measures.

Thanks to the AGROTEL amphibian protection fence or the AGROTEL frog fence, the endangered animals can now be collected in traps and then released safely on the other side of the road, thus receiving optimum protection during their migration.

Our protection fence is comprised of a PE-net and is available as rolled goods. Velcro fasteners are provided on both ends thus allowing extension to the desired length as required. Additionally tensioning cords, pegs and steel posts are also available within the scope of delivery.

AGROTEL amphibian protection fences have now been in use for several years and have been proven many times over.
