Mink Frogs Surveys Coming Soon to Northern Wisconsin Wetlands

Mink frogs are a “Species of Special Concern” in Wisconsin, meaning their populations are low or declining. DNR’s Natural Heritage Conservation staff are actively tracking them, but we need your help to close information gaps.

Mink frogs often call during the day, outside the window when our Wisconsin Frog and Toad Survey volunteers listen for frog calls. So we’re launching special surveys this summer for mink frogs from June 6 – July 15. The surveys will include two daytime surveys and two evening surveys. For information on  routes and how to be part of the survey can be found here.

Contact project coordinator Rori Paloski for more information.
