Please visit the new website of the Oregon Spotted Frog Recovery Team:
Most of the work that we do is funded by you - the Canadian public. We'd like you to know what we're up to so we have been building a website that both explains what we do, and provides the resources that we have developed over time.
When I first started with the species in 2008, few people had heard of the Oregon Spotted Frog. We have worked hard to understand the species' needs, as well as the needs of other species associated with shallow water wetlands. We have done a lot of research, monitoring, restoration and outreach, and we have developed a lot of good information resources but you had to know about it and ask us directly to access it.
Thanks to the Precious Frog video by Isabelle Groc and Mike McKinley, tens of thousands of people have heard of the species. We have built over 30 hectares of wetlands for the species, and we have trained dozens of people in species identification and handling. We have developed training resources, restoration plans, monitoring protocols and much much more. Now we have a website on which we can make it all available.
Please check out the website, and let us know what you think. It's a work in progress, and we'll respond to your suggestions!
