2018 Egg Mass Survey Results

WCAMP had another very successful egg mass survey season. The table below shows the results of the survey sites. Overall it appears amphibians are doing well. We have learned that weather is hard to predict and does affect our overall results. We have had two years of late season cold events that result in delayed then explosive amphibian breeding. Our prearranged survey dates don’t always fall on the best timing for surveys. We will be working to strengthen our methodologies to see if we can reduce the error associated with this. After the table is a link to two documents produced from this years results. Have fun reading and a Huge Thank You to all that helped in this years efforts. You make a difference!!!!!
