The AZA FrogWatch USA chapter model was launched in 2010 with the goal of ensuring that data submitted are high quality, and that volunteers can receive a more personalized experience under the guidance of a knowledgable chapter coordinator. One or more coordinators per chapter receive training on program implementation, after which AZA provides ongoing support through a variety of networking and learning opportunities. The result is a network of prepared leaders that recruit, train, and support volunteers from their local communities. View the complete list of active chapters.
Chapters are hosted at AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums, nature centers, wildlife sanctuaries, and other like-minded organizations. Starting a chapter at your organization is the perfect way to promote amphibian conservation in your community and get local individuals engaged in citizen science.

AZA is dedicated to providing a strong line of support to the network of chapter coordinators across the country, primarily through an online professional networking and discussion platform. Explore the resources available to current chapter coordinators.
