USD Scientist Seeks Public Volunteers to Help With Research on Frogs
The training will take place from 3:00-6:00 p.m. in Room 145 of the Churchill Haines building on the campus of the University of South Dakota.
According to Kerby, the training will enable members of the public to recognize different frogs and different frog calls. This will allow citizen scientists to conduct field research and document the types of frogs they hear, and where they hear them.
Kerby adds that shrinking frog numbers in recent years makes frog research especially important.
“Training citizens to help perform this research expands the areas where we can gather information, and this is extremely useful to our understanding of frogs,” said Kerby. “The information provided by citizens helps us learn which amphibians are in trouble, and which ones are not in trouble.”
Kerby advises anyone interested in frogs or nature to visit the national FrogWatch website at: https://www.aza.org/frogwatch
