"Citizen Scientists" Wanted for FrogWatch at Santa Barbara Zoo

Published On: Feb 04 2014 11:57:46 AM CST

The Santa Barbara Zoo is calling for volunteers to help identify and count local frogs and toads as part of the national FrogWatch USA conservation program.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

(Santa Barbara Zoo) They live in backyards, parks, fields, creeks or just about anywhere, but in many areas their numbers are dwindling.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is calling for volunteers to help identify and count local frogs and toads as part of the national FrogWatch USA conservation program. The information gathered may ultimately lead to practical and workable ways to stop amphibian decline.

Those ready to “jump at the chance” must attend two Zoo training sessions, held Thursday, February 21 and 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Reservations are required.

For more information or to register for FrogWatch, email Dr. Estelle Sandhaus at esandhaus@sbzoo.org. More information is available at www.sbzoo.org/conservation/frogwatch-usa.
