A Double Life

Frogs are amphibians, a group of animals that usually live part of their life in water and part of their life on land. Frogs spend their young tadpole life stage in water breathing with gills (like a fish) and then, as they change from a tadpole into a frog (metamorphosis), they develop lungs to breathe on land as adults.

Be a Frog Nature Hero

You can help frogs by:

  • Helping scientists collect data about frogs with FrogWatch, a community science project run by our friends at the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA).
  • Helping to protect frog habitats—wetlands and surrounding woodlands. Make sure the wetlands in your town are protected and that people are taking care of them.
  • Asking your school if you can help with an important frog conservation project with Mass Audubon and Zoo New England.
