Columbia Spotted Frog


Illustration of the Columbia Spotted FrogNo direct management of Spotted Frog populations in Alberta has taken place. Volunteer amphibian monitoring has been initiated at a provincial level, as well as both in Banff and Waterton Lakes National Parks. These efforts may improve the success of tracking amphibian numbers in those areas.

In Alberta, relatively little is known of the current distribution and population status of the Columbia Spotted Frog. There have been suggestions that the provincial populations may be in decline and it is speculated that marked declines in numbers and range occurred during the 1970s and in the 1990s. However, without monitoring, it is impossible to confidently outline population trends.
