On November 3rd, 2012, Turtle Talliers and FrogWatchers from across the province gathered for a fun-filled day of presentations from frog and turtle stewards, opportunities to share photos and meet fellow conservationists, and an opportunity to tour the Zoo’s reptile and amphibian exhibits!

Thank-you to everyone that came out and good luck with your future surveys!

Ontario Turtle Tally and FrogWatch Ontario are fun, citizen science, wildlife monitoring programmes that collect and analyze turtle and frog observation information. Participants from across the province submit turtle and frog observations online throughout the year. The data we collect is used to map distributions of Ontario’s reptile and amphibian species, identify important habitat in need of protection, and better understand threats impacting species at risk.
