Columbia Spotted Frog


The Spotted Frog has been assigned to Alberta's Blue List of species in both the 1991 and the 1996 wildlife status reviews. The species is described as one of unknown population status with an extremely limited distribution, for which investigation of a possible decline is required. As a non-game species, Spotted Frogs in Alberta are protected from hunting, killing, molestation, and possession under the provincial Wildlife Act. No previous report on the status of this species has been prepared in Alberta.

For more information on what is being done to help the status of all frogs in Canada check out the FrogWatch website!
