Group Description

Welcome to the FrogWatch USA™ Flickr Group!

FrogWatch USA™ is a citizen science program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) that allows individuals and families to learn about the wetlands in their communities and help conserve amphibians. Volunteers register a wetland site and make multiple evening visits from February through August to collect data on the calls of frogs and toads.

It is estimated that at least one-third of known amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Volunteers of FrogWatch USA can help scientists understand which frogs and toads may be increasingly common or in decline throughout the United States.

FrogWatch USA volunteers and chapter coordinators are invited and encouraged to share photos and experiences during their participation in FrogWatch USA . Thank you for your contributions!
