Roads, Rain, and a Couple Thousand Amphibians – Call it a Big Night!
Big nights are fascinating and unique natural events that occur every spring. With spring rain and warming temperatures, frogs and salamanders move to their breeding grounds by the truckload. However, these miniature migrations often put them in harm’s way on roads. How we can assist and protect these ancient populations will be the subject of this presentation.
Greg LeClair is a graduate student in ecology and environmental science at the University of Maine. As the creator of the “Maine Big Night” project he coordinates the collection of statewide data on Maine’s amphibian migrations.
