Roger Williams Park Zoo FrogWatch USA

A strong presence of frogs and toads is indicative a healthy habitat, hence being called “indicator species.” FrogWatch is a community science program that provides volunteers the opportunity to learn about wetlands in their community by submitting scientific data on the calls of local frogs and toads they hear. The program provides scientists with evidence of species distribution as well as identifying impacts of habitat loss and climate change which can then be used to make informed decisions around land use, development, and other important environmental considerations.
