Chiricahua Leopard Frog & Pupfish

Threatened or Endangered Species: Chiricahua Leopard Frogs are back on the Research Ranch! After being extirpated by unknown causes in the 1980s, this threatened species has been reintroduced to two locations (see photo). Both populations are doing well and we anticipate new populations will result as individuals mature and begin migrating away from the release sites. Thanks to all who made the return of this species possible: staff from BLM, AZGF, USFWS, the Phoenix Zoo, and the Frog Project!
