Did you know that in just over an hour you can collect valuable information on local frog, toad, and salamander populations that help to better understand and protection amphibians? Working alongside members of Mystic Aquarium’s Herpetology, Research and Conservation Education teams, you will join us in our newest citizen science initiative as we conduct field surveys to swab amphibians for chytrid fungus. This is a great opportunity to get up close and muddy in the name of conservation!
