About the Vancouver Aquarium Oregon spotted frog conservation efforts.
In an effort to protect this species, the Vancouver Aquarium joined the Oregon Spotted Frog Recovery Team in 2000.
In 2007, Oregon spotted frog eggs were collected to establish an aquarium-based assurance population. The
first ever Oregon spotted frog breeding in an aquarium environment took place in 2010. In 2011, close to 3,000 cultured tadpoles and juvenile frogs were released into natural habitats near established populations in the wild.
In addition to the assurance population, the Oregon Spotted Frog Recovery Program includes habitat management, monitoring, research, and restoration conducted in partnership with the BC Ministry of Environment, BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, Canadian Wildlife Service, Department of National Defense, Seabird Island Band, District of Kent, Fraser Valley Regional District, Greater Vancouver Zoo, Toronto Zoo, Mountain View Conservation Centre, Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, Simon Fraser
University, University of British Columbia, BC Conservation Foundation, Wildlife Preservation Canada and
Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition.
