Oregon Spotted Frog

Posted on

This year, we were retained to ensure that adverse impacts to of one the most endangered amphibians in Canada – the Oregon Spotted Frog – did not occur during routine channel maintenance work in the Fraser Valley. To achieve this objective, intensive monitoring was undertaken during the works, including the thorough examination of vegetation removed from watercourses. The Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP) routinely salvaged amphibians including Red-legged Frogs, Northwestern Salamanders, Rough-skinned Newts, Pacific Chorus Frogs (Tree Frogs) and, the highly valued Oregon Spotted Frog (photograph below).
