Bill Radke, Refuge Manager for San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was the keynote speaker at the Organization of Biological Field Stations annual meeting held in Portal, Arizona  at the Southwest Research Station last September. The theme of the meeting was "How Biodiversity is Shaping the Evolution of Research and Education at Field Stations." Over 120 registrants attended this meeting, during which Radke spoke about "Overcoming the Challenges of Conducting Research, Monitoring, and Species Recovery along the Arizona/Sonora Border." The Southwest Research Station has been a close collaborator with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the recovery of the Chiricahua Leopard Frog through implementation of a frog "head start program" originally utilizing tadpoles from Leslie Canyon NWR to produce thousands of eggs for eventual release into suitable habitat throughout the Chiricahua Mountains in southeast Arizona.
