It's not easy being green! Did you know that one-third of the world's amphibian species are facing extinction in our lifetime? Friends of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo and FrogWatch USA volunteer citizen scientists are making a difference by collecting information about frog calls and submitting it to a national database coordinated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. With our help, biologists can track changes in frog populations and develop conservation programs to save them.
How can you get involved? Become a FrogWatch volunteer! Volunteers participate in fun, interactive training sessions at the zoo to learn how to identify frog calls, choose an observation site where frogs may live and make observations during breeding season. FrogWatch volunteers may also join the chapter on exciting local field trips to wetlands to explore what species of frogs may be found in different areas.
FrogWatch USA is a great way to get closer to nature, help save frogs and bond with friends and family!
