Populations of frogs and toads are declining throughout the world, including in the Hudson Valley. Long-term monitoring is necessary to help determine the steps necessary to curb these declines. The efforts of professional scientists alone are not enough to accurately track amphibian population trends, therefore the fates of several species of frogs and toads are dependent on the efforts of volunteer Citizen Scientists.
The North American Amphibian Monitoring Program (NAAMP) is a Citizen Science-based effort to collect data on frogs and toads. Volunteers drive a predetermined route after sunset 4 times during the spring and summer, and listen for calling frogs and toads. There are 10 stops per route, and volunteers listen for 5 minutes at each stop, record their data online and send it to the state coordinator. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
