Natural pools

Pools are an essential habitat for amphibians (frogs, toads and salamanders). Our site features plenty of natural resources ideal for this purpose, and there is enough water suitable for their breeding needs. By creating extra pools and a pond, we have made the habitat even more suitable.


Pools are not only important for the reproduction of amphibians, but also add variety to the terrain, which in turn always results in more species of plants and animals. They also serve as a nursery for water and marsh plants, a natural habitat for insects and other invertebrates and as a drinking place for birds and small mammals. Not only the pool itself but also the bank above the water line can be an excellent breeding ground for certain organisms. There are sun-loving insects who are pleased to nest in the sunny northern bank, for example.
