Do you have an interest in Frogs and Toads? Become a FrogWatch Volunteer!
You do not have to be a frog or toad expert to be a FrogWatch USA volunteer! All you need is an interest in frogs and toads, willingness to participate in a volunteer training session at Cosley Zoo, your local FrogWatch USA Chapter, and a commitment to monitor a wetland site for 3 minutes multiple evenings throughout the breeding season. (February-August)
FrogWatch Cosley Zoo is a local chapter of FrogWatch USA, AZA’s flagship citizen science program that invites individuals and families to learn about the wetlands in their communities and help conserve amphibians by reporting the calls of local frogs and toads.
FrogWatch USA volunteers play an important role in amphibian conservation. Over 2000 amphibian species are currently threatened with extinction and many more are experiencing sharp population declines. This alarming trend may be a sign of deteriorating wetland health because amphibians can serve as indicator species.
