Southwest Region, March 11, 2009
Print Friendly Version

Refuge staff assisted an adjacent private landowner with the transport and relocation of approximately 1,500 Chiricahua leopard frog eggs.  The Magoffin Ranch is one of the few places where Chiricahua leopard frogs are still found in strong numbers and without the non-native bullfrog.  The Magoffin Ranch has been working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife for many years to provide habitat for this listed species and has been very successful in their endeavors.  Eggs were moved under refuge permits and a safe harbor agreement with the Malpai Borderlands Group.
