|Oregon Spotted Frog|
As part of an effort to keep the Oregon spotted frog (Rana pretiosa) from becoming extinct if the foreseeable future, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) proposed today to protect the frog as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
The USFWS also proposed to designate 68,192 acres and 23 streams miles as critical habitat for the Oregon spotted frog throughout Washington and Oregon. The Service now has up to one year to determine whether the proposed listing and proposed critical habitat in today's announcements (August 29, 2013) should become final.
