HELP RECOVER THE OREGON SPOTTED FROG

The Oregon Spotted Frog is Canada’s most endangered amphibian, with fewer than 500 breeding females in the wild. In Canada, this frog is found only in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley and is federally listed as endangered.

The latin name of the species, Rana pretiosa, means Precious Frog, and is a reminder of the spectacular appearance of the frog. With its bright golden eyes, the Oregon Spotted Frog is beautiful and truly precious in many ways. By conserving this species, we are ensuring that the rich wetland habitat the Precious Frog depends on still exists and contributes to global diversity.

The Oregon Spotted Frog Recovery Team coordinates efforts to assess, conserve, manage, and recover the Precious Frog in Canada.
