Frogwatch USA

Frogwatch USA logo
from the Frogwatch USA web site

FrogWatch USA is a Citizen Science Monitoring Program that gives YOU the opportunity to help scientists conserve amphibians! Being a FrogWatch volunteer gives you the opportunity to gather information that will help increase awareness of nationwide amphibian declines that can ultimately lead to practical and workable ways to help conserve these important species – all while helping you learn more about the wetlands in your community and the calls of frogs and toads in your community!

FrogWatch USA has been managed by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) since 1998, however the management of this long-term amphibian study is currently in a year-long process of transitioning to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

At the web site you can find such resources as:
  • Learn the eight easy steps of how to observe and report on frogs
  • Eight things you can do to help amphibians
  • Learn how to choose the best site for frogwatching
  • Learn how to help frogs and toads to overwinter
  • FrogWatch reports from previous years
  • and more....
