On thealmanac.org last week, Marilyn Stone noted that she hasn't heard the chorus of leopard frogs she usually hears by this time of year, and wondered about the effect of a nearby wetlands that dried up last fall. KVNF's Marty Durlin has some answers

I love frogs, where I live we have a park that holds special events to hear and observe frogs on a full moon night. It is really cool. I hope these frogs are going to be ok.

Very sad that the next generation will not hear the heavenly nightime chorus of comfort

Here's a link to the study that the article refers to. It analyzes the factors that contribute to Northern Leopard Frog "persistence" in order to make conservation decisions to help their chances of survival and
population increase.

You know it's spring when the peepoers and wood frogs begin to chorus. Now we can look forward to the other frogs and toads singing away for the next few months-wonderful, peaceful and soporific!

Frogs are important for the environment and they are so cute. I love the care2 frog that leaps across the pages.

Sad to hear. Always enjoy the sound in this area of the symphony of the frogs...thousands of them sing so loudly it is amazing.
