A California Red-legged Frog.

Roberta Chan spotted this CA Red-legged frog while closing the gates at Gualala Point Regional Park recently.

This frog is listed as threatened and is federally protected by the Endangered Species Act. That they live next to the Gualala River, in its floodplain, is wonderful. I would suggest that any Gualala River floodplain logging plans should be rejected, for many reasons, including the existence of this threatened frog.

Thanks to Roberta for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
