Establishing a FrogWatch USA chapter supports a national network of FrogWatch USA chapters and volunteers that together provide large-scale, long-term data and contribute to amphibian conservation. The FrogWatch USA chapter network also promotes institutions and groups within their local community and links ex-situ programs to in-situ conservation at zoos and aquariums.
Some incentives for starting a local FrogWatch USA chapter include:
FrogWatch USA online training courses are available! The chapter coordinator training course is a self-paced, interactive module that provides you with the resources needed to host a local FrogWatch USA chapter, and defines your roles and responsibilities as a chapter coordinator. Learn more and enroll.
FrogWatch USA regional coordinators continue to offer in-person chapter coordinator workshops. There are currently no scheduled coordinator-led workshops - but check back regularly for more updates.
AZA is in the process of identifying a new managing organization for FrogWatch USA. We appreciate all of our Coordinators and Volunteers and everything you have done for this program. FrogWatch USA volunteers will continue to have access to resources through this website and access to review and submit data to the FieldScope platform. After December 2021, please direct all inquiries to local chapters.
