Saving the relict leopard frog
Saving the relict leopard frog

Listen
AIR DATE: May 19, 2011

At one point the relict leopard frog was thought to be extinct. But in the early nineties the frog was rediscovered at various springs in southern Nevada. A team of biologists from UNLV working with federal wildlife officials recently backpacked buckets of relict leopard frogs to a spring near Lake Mohave. The latest is one of about 10 releases of relict leopard frogs into the wild. Project leader Jef Jaeger is a research professor at UNLV Public Lands Institute and he joins us to talk about releasing the relict leopard frog into the wild and why the species is important to the area.
