Western Toads in the News
This year marked A Rocha’s seventh year monitoring a local Western Toad population. The huge numbers of juvenile toadlets emerging from their breeding pond along with A Rocha’s efforts to protect them as they made their way across roads into upland habitat attracted media attention.
2015 Conservation Science Presentations
Each semester A Rocha’s Conservation team at the Brooksdale Environmental Centre studies the health and inhabitants of the Little Campbell River watershed. Each trimester, staff, interns, volunteers, and partner organizations work on a number of projects.
This playlist includes our 7 projects undertaken in the summer of 2015. They include studies on: Western Toad, threats to the Northern Red-legged Frog, swallows, dissolved oxygen monitoring, Freshwater Mussels, Oregon Forestsnail and effective science communication.
