If you dig a hole in the woods or somewhere and place a plastic bag inside then pour water into it cover it up and the next day with any luck you may have a newt in there.

Well it is a good idea to try to help them breed, because then if you are trying to repopulate the species then it is LEGAL ANYWHERE. P.S If caught feeding a newt the wrong diet you could be locked up.

Where do you live? If it's the UK don't, it's totally illegal, they're a protected Species and for good reason. During the shiny days of the 60's and 70's in my local town, I know of various sites which were totally wiped out leaving the Newt a true rarity.
