The Western Chorus Frog is listed as Threatened in Ontario

Have you heard or observed any of these species in our region? 

If you have, we would like to know where.

The Eastern whip-poor-will,  Common nighthawk, and Western chorus frog are all listed as Species at Risk in Ontario.


In partnership with Environment Canada’s Habitat Stewardship Program, the Couchiching Conservancy will be monitoring these species and more over the next three years to get a better understanding of their population and locations in our region (especially Simcoe County).   We will also be working on recovery where their habitat has been compromised. 

If you have any information that would be useful for us in our search for these Species at Risk, please contact our Citizen Science Project Manager, Dorthea Hangaard, at the office.  (705) 331-0703.

Click on any of the thumbnails above to hear what each species sounds like.   The Western Chorus Frog should not be confused with the short  “Preek” Trill of the Spring Peeper.
