Collecting frogs & snakes
The last milestone in the cooperation has been the generational project MK + 3K K-onnection. Extensive construction work in the area of stations and pylons made it necessary to relocate amphibians that were living there. "Common frogs, alpine newts, mountain lizards, common European adders and slow worms move on the ground. They can't just take off like birds and fly to the other side of the valley. Therefore, before even starting construction work, we collected the amphibians and reptiles with drift fences, buckets and snake traps to temporarily relocate them in nearby habitats. Over the course of construction, spawning sites have been made to restore and even enhance their habitat", Martin explains.
