Julius Csotonyi, Artist

This portrayal underscores both the importance of preserving both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems necessary for the survival of the northern leopard frog, and also how fragile it is, as its weight barely registers on the vegetation on which it rests. Yet, its fingers and toes also brace against the plants, indicating how it absolutely requires other species in its environment to support it ecologically, and how we must think in terms of the connectivity of ecosystems when we endeavour to protect them.

While the northern leopard frog might be a small animal, it holds a large place in my heart with everything that makes it so unique, especially its iconic song. Many British Columbia wetlands are currently missing the sounds of their chuckles and snores. I’m extremely proud to be part of the larger B.C. Northern Leopard Frog Recovery Team working to bring their song back across their historical range in the province. We’re excited that this coin shares the story of the northern leopard frog and will help the species make its way into the hearts of many other Canadians.

Conservation breeding comes along with a whole range of questions. How do we maintain and diversify genetics? How can we maximize animal welfare? What habitat requirements would best mimic the species’ wild home? At the Wilder Institute, we’re committed to answering these questions for the northern leopard frogs in our conservation breeding program. With every tadpole or frog that enters our facility, we look forward to learning more about how we can create a more hopeful future for this species.
