WHERE: Colorado Rocky Mountains (Wetlands)
WHAT: Hiking, Data Gathering + Swabbing
Endangered and declining in Colorado, the boreal toad is especially vulnerable to the deadly chytrid fungus. We’re seeking community scientists to help us monitor the species’ high-country habitat—including searching for toads and swabbing them for chytrid. This will help us understand the health of current wild populations and determine suitable locations for future reintroduction of captive-bred Denver Zoo toads.
