FrogWatch USA is a citizen science program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) that provides individuals, groups, and families with an opportunity to learn about wetlands in their communities and report data on the calls of local frogs and toads. Data have been collected since 1998 from every state in the United States. You do not have to be a frog or toad expert to make an important contribution!
You should participate if you have:
- An interest in learning about frogs and toads
- The commitment to learn and identify their distinct calls
- The ability to make several evening observations from February through August
You can be directly involved in gathering information that may help stop the decline of these treasured animals. Monitoring can be done independently or as part of a group. A volunteer listens for just three minutes, records what species they hear, and then enters the data into the national Frog Watch Field Scope database. To get started and find free listening workshops near you where you will learn the calls of all local frog and toad species go to: www.aza.org/frogwatch
