Frogs will soon be calling, and we are calling on YOU!

The threatened western chorus frog (WCF) has recently experienced population declines. In response, a long-term monitoring program has been created by Blazing Star Environmental, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Trent University. This program will help us understand the changing WCF distribution. Data collected will allow the conservation community to detect and respond to WCF range declines over time.

Since the WCF range is large and the calling period is short, this program will rely on individuals to conduct short call surveys, beginning as early as March 2022. For more details about the program, please contact and also visit
