- Today the Western Leopard Toad (WLT) programme in conjunction with the Cape
Leopard Trust went to visit Steenberg Primary School Grade 5's.
A presentation was given by Jaclyn Stephenson
from the Cape Leopard Trust and Mark Arendse and Fay Howa from the
City of Cape Town with the Western Leopard Toad Programme.
The presentation was at school in the hall, about both iconic species in the Western Cape. Then the children were taken to Die Oog in Bergvleit to see if they could see any Western Leopard Toads. The breeding season starts about now and the WLT's move to all the suitable waterbodies to breed for a few days in the year and then disperse back into their territorial areas to forage for the rest of the year.
