Please Check your Bonfires Before Lighting Them!





Amphibians such as the GCN and the baby smooth newts above, as well as small mammals and reptiles, are looking for piles of logs in which to hibernate. If you're building a bonfire, don't do it more than a day or two in advance, and if it's been up a while, do try shifting it a few feet so that any animals who've taken refuge there have a chance to escape.

Salamanders crawlering out of fires is how they got their names. Thank you for caring.
