Action: Create refuge areas in aquatic habitats
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of creating refuge areas in aquatic habitats on amphibian populations.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Refuge areas that provide the correct microclimate and some protection from predation can be created for amphibians where natural shelters are limited.
