Last week Federal, State, and local partners signed the second 10-year Conservation Agreement and Strategy for Columbia spotted frog in the state of Nevada. This latest agreement will be implemented until 2025 and will continue the partnership that begun in 2003. The focus of the Agreement and Strategy is to protect the spotted frog and their habitats to ensure their continued existence. Columbia spotted frogs in Nevada are currently found in the central (Nye County) and northern (Elko, Eureka, and Humboldt county) portions of the state.
Partners include: U.S. Forest Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Nye County Board of Commissioners and the Bureau of Land Management.
