Mountain Yellow-legged Frog Conservation Assessment

A Collaborative Inter-Agency Project

Mountain yellow-legged frog adult.This Conservation Assessment was developed as a tool to guide future Conservation Strategy and recovery planning for mountain yellow-legged frogs in the Sierra Nevada.

Conservation Assessments document all conservation– or management–pertinent information that is known or unknown about a species, including its ecology, habitat needs, current and historical population levels, and management risks. Conservation Assessments also provide conservation recommendations based on the best available knowledge.

In turn, these recommendations are incorporated into a focused Conservation Strategy designed to benefit the species.
