Help for frogs and their friends

Animal lovers across Wisconsin are being asked to help keep native frogs, salamanders, lizards and snakes from perishing under the wheels of cars and trucks.

As more herps seek warmth on roadways as air temperatures cool, Wisconsin residents and visitors are asked to report where they’re seeing these reptiles and amphibians — dead or alive. Your information will help conservationists  better understand where their populations occur and can help save more of them in the future.

The new roadkill reporting form is now available on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Amphibians & Reptiles webpage.

Reports of deadly road crossings for turtles should still go to the longstanding Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program. 

Together, we can make a difference for Wisconsin’s herps!
