FROG LISTENING NETWORK
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo has renewed its partnership with The Hillsborough River Watershed Alliance (HRWA) in the Frog Listening Network (FLN). The partnership enhances environmental education and research in the Hillsborough River watershed, while providing a physical home for an interactive demonstration exhibit at the Zoo.
A newly refurbished Frog Listening Network display, made possible by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, houses nine species of native and non-native frogs and toads with audio components so guests can hear the calls of each individual frog.
The HRWA provides everything a resident needs to listen for native frog calls and to collect population data – free of charge. Zoo guests can learn more by visiting the Frog Listening Network exhibit located in the Harrell Discovery Center. Learn more about native and invasive amphibian species and the important role of frogs in the environment.
The following species are a part of the Frog Listening Network:
Green Tree Frog
Cuban Tree Frog
