USFWS Grants FYLF Endangered Species Protections

On August 28th, 2023, the US Fish & Wildlife Service announced that it will provide Endangered Species Act protections to four of the six geographically and genetically distinct population segments (DPS) of the Foothill Yellow-Legged Frog!

This victory comes eight years after I submitted an official public comment to the Service requesting such protections. You can read that letter and learn about the USFWS decision on our brand new Foothill Yellow-Legged Frog webpage.

We thank the USFWS for taking action to protect threatened amphibians!
