"Greenworks" was officially registered on March 8, 1994. This association attracts many who realise that up until now most forms of environmental preservation of various species have been ineffective. We propose and implement a series of practical steps which efficiently protect the main habitats of several endangered species. These steps include ones already in use in Western Europe and America. They effectively lower the death rate of many species and lead to an increase in their number in areas which are actively protected.
This association has impliemented an expanded Project of Active Amphibian Protection (since 1992) as well as a Project for Active Reptile Protection (begun in 1993).
The actual work involves:
You can start to protect amphibians (and other animals) in your neighbourhood. In your first free day from school, go to the suburbs and look at what is living in a pond or puddle. You may be surprised because there are many other things in the water besides amphibians.
You can write to "Greenworks". We can send you free educational material (also in English, if you like) if you send us money for stamps (approx. $0.30 for Europe, 3500zł for Poland) and your address.
You can make a difference if you put your mind to it.
Amphibians we protect:
The green toad is one of the most beautiful colored Polish amphibians. It has irregular green spots scattered on a coffee-yellow background. It appears mainly in lowlands and hills. It likes gardens, fields and very often comes into cellars and other buildings. It is considered a synanthropical species. It stays in one place for life and this makes it more useful to humans. It is an inestimable gardener's friend when it comes to overcoming pests.
Field work is the most important and at the same time the least expensive. Digging, deepening ponds and transferring frogs or egg sacs require only good will.
Printing educational materials and organising conferences does require support. Here are our precious sponsors:
as well as many companies and individuals to whom we would once again
like to extend our thanks.

Amphibians we protect.
The carpathian ewt can reach a length of 10-20cm. It is clay yellow with two furrows on its back. This endemic species is found only in the Carpathian region. It can be found breeding in small, cold ponds from April to July. The male has no specific coloring for the mating period but instead has a thin string at the end of its tail. This species is classified as "very rare" by the Polish Red Book of Animals.
