Frogwatch USA is a long-term frog and toad monitoring program. This new program aspires to engage the public in conservation, while helping to compile valuable information about frog and toad population distributions, population trends at individual wetlands, and yearly calling phenologies. Volunteers and scientists from across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands can contribute to the Frogwatch USA effort by periodically monitoring a convenient wetland site for the presence of calling frogs and toads. After surveying the wetland, they can directly submit their findings via the Frogwatch USA Web site.
At the end of each season, results will be posted on that Web site for researchers, enthusiasts, and concerned citizens.
