Scientists in Action: An Ode to Toads

by  Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Program image

Would you, could you, help a toad? For the Denver Zoo, the answer to this question is a resounding “yes!” The Boreal Toad, native to the mountains of the American West, is endangered in both Colorado and Wyoming. In turn, we think it will be TOADALLY cool to see how Denver Zoo field conservation & animal care teams are collaborating with Colorado Parks & Wildlife to restore this important species within its high-elevation habitat. Students get to ask specialists questions directly as we discuss the conservation of this quiet, yet extremely valuable species, along with actions we can take to be good neighbors to wildlife. Hop to it and register today!
