Scientific research for the conservation of the species

The work includes the monitoring of Fowler's Toad as part of the Fowler's Toad Recovery Programme. Toads will be live captured, marked, and released at the point of their capture. Toads will not be injured, killed or removed. The work plan includes extensive use of remote monitoring methodology - however - the accuracy andreliability of a capture/census record is required on a seasonal basis in order to establish precise movement records. The capture/census work will occur only during and immediately after the May breeding season. The work involves a minimum of disruption to the toad population.

Start Date: 2008-07-08   End Date: 2010-12-31

Issuing Authority: Environment Canada

Authority Used:

  • Species at Risk Act

Location of Activity (province, territory or ocean):

  • Ontario

Affected Species:

The work is aimed at parameterizing demographic population variables for use specifically in modelling population viability of Fowler's Toad in Canada, according to the national recovery plan currently in preparation. This, long term, intense study is designed to yield the data required to formulate and enact a recovery plan for the species that will have a high probability of success. There are no alternatives to this procedure.
