How do northern leopard frogs spend the holidays? A Q & A with Calgary Zoo Population Ecologist and leopard frog project lead, Lea Randall.
We here at the Calgary Zoo are working hard to fulfill our vision- to be Canada’s leader in wildlife conservation!
We work locally with whooping cranes, Vancouver Island marmots, black-tailed prairie dogs, black-footed ferrets, burrowing owl, swift fox, sage grouse and leopard frogs, and abroad with hippos, Humboldt penguins, lemurs… and more. Our conservation work also extends through the work of our zookeepers, who care for many animals in Species Survival Plans (SSP’s) that keep the genetic populations of endangered species healthy and thriving.
