Phoenix Zoo Celebrate 25 Years Conserving Arizona Frogs

This year marks the 25th anniversary of collaboration between the Phoenix Zoo, Arizona Game and Fish Department, United States Fish and Wildlife Service and United States Forest Service to save the threatened Chiricahua leopard frog in Arizona.

In 1995, the Phoenix Zoo launched the recovery program with just a few small tanks in the curator’s office. Today, the Zoo runs the program from the Arthur L. and Elaine V. Johnson Foundation Native Species Conservation Center, with dedicated space for propagation. Since the program began, more than 26,000 tadpoles and frogs raised at the Zoo have been released to the wild.
