: Another Article on Frog for Fruddies!

From darting pollywogs to wine coolers to a verdant mountain stream, it has been quite a journey for the 65 spotted frogs who recently leaped to freedom, thanks to years of painstaking care and collaboration at the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research. Mountain yellow-legged frogs are once again gracing the waters from which they came! Saving this species has taken the patience and creativity of many, and the release earlier this month was the first step toward this amphibian finding its way back home. Frank Santana, researcher at San Diego Zoo Global, shares insights about the frogs' release in this short video.
Thought you might enjoy this article and video. I don't know how to share it with the whole group, but feel welcome to.
Hugs to you and Dottie,
