North American Amphibian Monitoring Program

Frog and Toad Calls Website for Georgia

brought to you by

The North American Amphibian Monitoring Program has recently expanded to include frog call surveys in Georgia. Organized by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, this effort will help us learn more about frog population trends and distributions. Volunteers with demonstrable abilities to identify Georgia frogs by their calls are needed. If you are interested, please contact John Jensen, GA NAAMP Coordinator, at: john_jensen@dnr.state.ga.us or (478)994-1438.

This website was made possible through the generous donation of frog call recordings by W. W. Knapp. He has authorized the free use of these recordings including downloading of mp3 clips to digital devices to faciliate their use by NAAMP volunteers. A complete CD of frog calls with narrated species accounts can be purchased at http://wwknapp.home.mindspring.com/GAFrog.Toad.html

The map to the right and associated table provides a coarse indication of where particular species may occur in GA. It should not be interpreted as the current range of a species nor does it indicate that a species will be heard in a region.
