A Conservation Success Story – Columbia Spotted Frog

Nevada Department of Wildlife uses the Institute’s Columbia Spotted Frog (Rana luteiventris) range data for inclusion in their story map for their final Conservation Agreement prepared by the Columbia Spotted Frog Technical Team. THI’s data was applied to shows species distribution of this resilient little amphibian.

See story here: “Nevada is a state covered by desert and semi-arid landscape. It is also a state full of surprises. One of these surprises is the remarkable Columbia spotted frog (Rana luteiventris). Despite being associated with and dependent on water this amazing little amphibian has managed to survive in one of the driest states in the United States of America” (1 a conservation story).
