Identify NE Species of Greatest Conservation Need Data Gaps, Design Data Collection Protocols, and Collect Data

Distribution and Conservation Status of the Newly Described Species of Leopard Frog in the Coastal NE

The recent discovery of a cryptic species of leopard frog in the Northeast means that nine states (CT, DE, MA, MD, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA) may have to redefine their faunal checklists and/or lists of Species of Greatest Conservation Need.

Developing a Coordinated Research Approach for Hellbender Conservation in the Northeast with benefits to Wild Mudpuppy Populations

Although the hellbender has been identified as a Species of Greatest Conservation Need by the Northeast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, there remain substantial data gaps in its distribution. The common mudpuppy shares a significant portion of its habitat with the hellbender, and has been identified as a Species of High Conservation Concern by the Northeast Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation.
