Upper Echo Lake Playing Key Role in Conservation of Yellow Legged Frog

Claire Cudahy of the Tahoe Daily Tribune reported that trout introductions played a key role in the decline of the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog. Recently progress has been made toward conservation of the species.

"From 2013-2015 Knapp and his team conducted a series of translocations and frog reintroductions in the areas around the Upper and Lower Echo lakes; they recently received another three-year grant to continue the work this summer."
Rather than deny the importance of the area to this endangered frog, the Forest Service should embrace it.
