Pacific Newt Roadkill: 70 found dead today; 1 alive & injured

March 6, 2019 (Wednesday) 9:45 am – 11:45 am

I found 70 dead newts on Alma Bridge Rd. this morning between Limekiln Trailhead and gate SA-19. I also found one injured newt on the road. Its injuries were very severe. I don’t think it will survive.

The injured newt I found on Saturday is now dead. It was about 3 inches away from the place I put it in the grass.

Coverage: (~66%) Limekiln Trailhead to gate SA-19.

Rainfall: (MTD: 2.46 in; YTD: 21.62 in) It was raining last night and all morning.

Traffic: There were about 20 cars and trucks on the road this morning, including a U-Haul van.
