Orianne Society's new Species Coordinator for Long Leaf Pine Savanna (our friend and partner) Houston Chandler

I met Houston when he joined us to sample for Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders a few weeks ago out at Fort Stewart. I really enjoyed working with him and hearing about his research and new role at the Orianne Society. Here is an article introducing him and his new position.

The amazing ventral and lateral coloration of the Red-eyed Leaf Frog, #Agalychnis callidryas. The blue/purple hue on the legs and flanks are characteristic of #LeafFrogs from the #LaSelva region of Costa Rica. These are some of the most beautiful of all the Red-eye morphs. #Agalychniscallidryas #LeafFrog #Phyllomedusinae #CaptiveBred

The Metro Atlanta Amphibian Monitoring Program website and resources for our 'backyard amphibians'

The website contains images of all 28 species of urban frogs and salamanders in each life stage (adult, larva, juvenile, egg). It also contains frog calls and videos to help you identify what species are in your communities. It also has instructions for how you can become a 'citizen scientist', monitor amphibians in your neighborhood and submit data to the program.
